Invisible Worlds is a visual and poetic exploration on a text I wrote reflecting the invisible worlds that hide just below the surface, out of sight in our hurried, harried lives, but that richly reward those who pause and listen and look. The structure of Invisible Worlds incorporates Hedi Kyle’s fishbone fold design and reinforces the idea of hidden worlds of beauty that are only experienced with the reader’s time and attention and is reminiscent of geode rock formations that hide dazzling beauty beneath an unremarkable exterior.
