collaborative BookEnvirons
A BookEnviron is an artist's book that by concept and scale creates an immersion experience for the viewer who enters and explores the space that is shaped by the book.
The works for which we coined the term “BookEnviron” grew out of a brainstorming session that raised the question, 
“Wouldn't it be wonderful to create a book that is large enough to walk into?”
