Exploring boundaries and extensions of block printing, Fragile Planets is a circular meditation on human sensory perception. In a world flooded with visual reproductions, we may often encounter a thing through its image, before (or instead of) experiencing it "in real life". Are both the print and its original source equally valid?

A circle, one of the ancient symbols used by human civilization, carries strong connotations. The layered circular form of Fragile Planets may encourage contemplations of strength and fragility: a circle is protective, capable of excluding or containing worlds, yet permeable, allowing for entry or exit at any point.
