This large tunnel book intersperses poetic fragments from Gaston Bachelard's The Poetics of Space with collaged, textural, flesh-like layers of fiber and paper. Its content asks the reader to compare an abandoned bird's nest to a barren woman's womb. When the biological/intended purpose of a space isn't fulfilled, what meaning does that space take on, as a result of this absence?
