A State of Things: Miami Beach is an artist’s book that explores the future environmental impacts on Miami Beach through risograph and letterpress printing. The book is folded in varying dimensions to create unique compositional moments, allowing viewers to see the whole or see individual scenes within the book. The visuals are inspired by architectural details like the MacArthur Causeway Bridge, historic maps, and images of events in Miami Beach. These are depicted with compositions of wood type letterforms, to help portray climate change’s potential and drastic impact on Miami Beach’s historical community.
