North Bay:: Transformer Press,, 2006.. Edition of 3, State II. 6.5 x 9.9" closed accordion with pop-outs. Photocopied on acid free paper. Laid in cloth covered boards with interior corner pocket for book to slip into. Signed and numbered by the artist. This edition of 3 (called State II) is based on an original watercor-painted version which was State I. Transformer Press: "Northern Ontario highways are lined with rock cuts, sometimes covered with graffiti. This pop-up rock cut morphs into the artist's scarred body." Lise Melhorn-Boe, interview with Cassandra Kuyvenhoven from "The Garbage-loving Environmentalist": "This is a rock cut because I love the rock cuts along the highways up north. People do often put graffiti on the rock cuts, so my graffiti on this 'rock cut' is all the heavy metals that are in my body and the size of the lead and mercury are much bigger because I had a much higher concentration of those than say, tin. "To visualize - this book is cut out in the shape of me lying down on my side, with my leg stretched out. It connects to the quote down at the bottom, which is: 'there is no separation. We are the environment. So whatever we do to the environment, we do to ourselves' and that's David Suzuki. So I am part of these rocks, these rocks are a part of me. This is my personal landscape and it's my body and its intersections with the environment, with nature, with rocks, with metals."
