Artist statement: "In 'Wading Pool', an idyllic moment between two young sisters is threatened by the world outside their backyard wading pool and by the difference between their imagined worlds. This remembrance of writer Lynne Huffer's childhood is rendered in colorful geometric forms and inventive typography that enliven a two-sided accordion book. … The book was designed by Jennifer Yorke in collaboration with Huffer, and printed by Yorke. Huffer and Yorke met as fellows at the Hambidge Center and began their collaboration there.
