'Microbursts' is a collection of hybrid, lyric essays about the places between life and death; memoir and poetry; making and letting go. Originally written by Reeder as an intense text-based collection of lyric and experimental essays responding to the illnesses and deaths of her parents, it confronts the raw emotions of crisis, grief, and creativity. Through collaboration with Thomson, the project expanded to consider how design and visual intervention might alter the nature and impact of the text. The outcome is a book which explores the subjects of illness, crisis, creativity, caring, death, and grief, alongside the aesthetic and formal concerns of cross-genre writing, including how image, formatting, and text work together to create tension, understanding, and pace, expanding the possibilities of the essay and the artist's book.
