Britt and I printed the collaborative book Milk and Tacos in graduate school in 2003. The text is made of two childhood narratives intertwined through the book: one from the perspective of Britt, the other from me. The structure reveals the text in a non-linear narrative.

In the spirit of early our friendship we revisited the project in 2018, working together to embellish the pages we printed 15 years ago. We sat together at a table hand stitching French-knots and fastening rhinestones, working to adorn the pages. Decorative marks from thread and stone interact with the text and image on the page. The work reflects the dialogue of a long friendship, where two paths move in many directions, cross paths, and come together.
