Encyclopedia of Regrets
Altered books with mixed media and found objects, 2010 – 2016

A 20-volume set of altered books representing a set of “encyclopedias” chronicles the vast regrets that accrue over a lifetime, from the humorous to the very real (Awful Haircuts to Broken Hearts; Failed Relationships to Forgotten Friends; Compromised Ideals to Derailed Ambitions, Guilt Over Children to Guilt over Parents). This piece will likely become part of the Narcissist’s Library installation. There is now also a wall-framed version of it in that series.
