Naive Forms

With time, we turn the visible world into designated meaning and language, replacing looking with thinking.

This book honors a fundamental, child-like experience of the world, one understood primarily through form and matter. Familiar objects of our environment are shown through the negative spaces of other objects around them, as a way to distort perception. The reader may find underlying connections and meaning between them, forming their own sense of the world.
