This edition of 21 explores specimen collection and presentation, combined with journal type entries about the specimens presented (in this case, things shed by my body). Each day for 21 days I rescued something my body was shedding (eyelash off my cheek) or helped something detach from my body (plucked hair). Each day’s specimen was scanned at a magnification of 500%, those scans were printed via color inkjet and included in the book pages. The cover of each book holds one of the specimens sandwiched in between glass for a variable edition of 21 copies.
