Failing to Succeed
Mixed book media, typewritter, and letterpress
If you try to succeed at everything you inevitably fail at something. This is the concept that prompted me to think of failure as a precursor to success. To test my theory I cataloged my failures for fifteen weeks and created this book. "Failing to Succeed" was selected for the 2008 print exchange between California College of the Arts and Osaka University. It was featured in the show "Pacific Overtures", which was exhibited at both institutions.
