About the Book
Corbin considers a constellation of questions about the seemingly simple elements of the everyday—from cornflower-spotted fields around, to the Detroit Salt Mine below, and the sun hovering beyond our blue sky above. Along this trail of vast ideas, artworks guide the way. Questions take root (and soil asks them) while the sun exhales, and values are composted while a version of hope is fertilized. Here, blue, salt, plants, soil, dust, wishes, and gifts compose the stuff of Corbin’s everyday magic.
Madelaine Corbin is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Detroit, Michigan.
