Aspen Mays & Dan Boardman “Where We’ve Been…” book


Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going, Why? by Aspen Mays and Dan Boardman is a synthesis of personal and public archives, drawing connections between seemingly disparate events—the return of Halley’s Comet, a cross country road trip, and the first teacher in space. Double spiral binding both links and partitions the artists’ parallel narratives. Information related to both works—an appendix, an essay by Jeremy Haik, and colophon—are printed on short sheets of varying sizes and placed at the meeting point of these two books.
