"This book was developed as part of an ongoing project exploring the idea of the garden and how we seek to impose order and perfection within its boundaries. This book is a visual imposter. The pages contain a visual narrative, which explores the transience of perfection in nature. The book also questions the idea of perfection within the preserve of gardens that is traditionally presented by established horticulatural standards, gardening literature and the media."--Artist's statement.
