Artist books share characteristics with music. They’re time based experiences. They have a beginning, end, and rhythm created by both the artist and the viewer. They’re repeatable, like a song. Flood Music was made to be a sort of visual musical album, with images in place of lyrics and layout shifts in place of sounds. It could be called traveling music, as it lyrically pulls together moments and places of road trips through Minnesota, Nebraska and Louisiana over the span of a few years.
