I am fascinated by how creative people see, experience, and document their encounters with life. Some people write, others draw, or sketch, or take photographs, or write haiku.

Do you ever find something weird as you wander and wonder "How did this get here?" or "What does this mean?" Just yesterday I found two abandoned shoes near the train tracks. But not a pair. There are stories in debris, in discards, in the shrapnel of life—ephemeral evidence of a story that others will have to piece together into a patchwork puzzle. Candy Jernigan assembled some of the most beautiful ...more

Simply put, this book is cool! I did not know her artwork previous to seeing this. The obsessive nature of her "evidence" combined with the surprising presentations of her work force the viewer to consider a new perspective on the world around us. Inspirational.
