For my Senior project as a Fine Arts Major at Scripps College, I spent the fall semester exploring the history and possibility of the digital and analog artist book form. After going through a number of foundational changes, my project concept was eventually grounded in the form of a web-based hypertext artist book. Based on my pre-existing interest in storytelling and my previous study of mental immersion in possible worlds, I started the process by compiling an artistic representation of what it means to be a young girl discovering the possibilities for creation and empowerment available to her through storytelling. Wonder/Wander is the culmination of my experimentation with digital art, hypertext, and visual storytelling. It is my contribution to the artist book form as I have considered it and its evolution into the digital age.
