Pop up book. Part of the series “Haunted Philadelphia.”

As Philadelphia is a “City of Firsts” for its historic sites and centuries-old buildings, it has become known as one of America’s most haunted cities. I have incorporated my own anxieties into each piece. Each 36×53″ pop-up is printed with Archival Pigment Inks, mounted onto card stock, and is bound in Philly newspapers and Joss paper- also known as ghost money, which are sheets of paper that are burned in traditional Chinese deity or ancestor worship ceremonies and in Chinese funerals. Special thanks to the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center and the Robert M. MacNamara Foundation.
