an exercise to assess altitude in the Himalayas using phenomena
custom-bound artist's book
unique edition, with original drawings and texts
Enclosed here is a collection of drawings, writing, and chicken-scratch arithmetic, documenting an ascent up 1000 meters of a Himalayan mountain slope. This action was performed as an experiment both to measure changing altitude at 100-meter intervals based on the shifting boiling point of a pot of water, and to examine the mind under the influence of increasing altitude.
made in collaboration with mathematician Luke Wolcott
