The River Parcenta is based upon an installation of the same name which was presented by The Print Center at the Editions/Artists Book Fair 2010 in New York City. The installation was comprised of a circular felted river, a hanging cut paper lamp, spray paint, wheat-pasted gems and individual printed elements placed within the space. The portfolio tells the story of these characters and the artist's experiences during a trip along the River Parcenta in Poland. From the artist: "This book was influenced by two things: (1) my reading of The Trickster Makes This World, by Lewis Hyde and (2) a very difficult kayak trip I took in Poland with the band members Paula i Karol -- their music sustained us when we were tired, wet, and hungry."
