"this is a test" began as just that.... a test for a story that became the real thing quite by accident. The project was a story for a wedding, the various "pages" played out across plates that the guests took home, dispersed across time and space. Later, the images floated across cups, I liked the way the story was unmoored, bits appearing here and there. And thereby hangs the tale, this little book is the residue of that action.
