As part of an ongoing series tracking/tracing the deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction of found books, Pen Land Downspout, uses site-based architectural systems and inclement weather to explore all aspects of mapping and what we mean by place. References are made not only to notations, both in writing and visually, but also to the Titans of Greek religion, as Atlas and his counterpart Phoebe were associated with the oceans, the moon, tidal rhythms, predictions and the forces of gravity.
