A book project Fine is working on with the poet Carmen Gimenez Smith. Their collaborative dialogue addresses the personification of objects: the voice that their former and present lives come to form. The texts are informed by both fiction and non-fiction, and in this way, approach the notion of assemblage just as the collages themselves. The work resonates because of the whimsy, but more importantly, because it reminds the viewer of the material life all around us.

This research was presented at the Design Incubation Colloquium 1.4: St. John’s University Manhattan Campus on Thursday, February 12, 2015.
