Alisa Banks: "I am intrigued by the notion of 'who' a person is. … Air is the second in a series about the body (air = intelligence/thought) and memory (identity) based on the elements. The text weaves three 'stories' throughout the book - the background (large text) features the idea of creating the book Air. The background 'idea' coalesces in the center of the book and takes flight in the tulle 'cloud.' The idea goes from background (graphite) to foreground (thread). The second story is about air as breath and wind. This story winds itself around the other two throughout the book. The third story is a series of vignettes featuring more concrete memories (freedom, wind, breath, flight) that are represented by the computer-generated text 'patches'.
