RE- was inspired by Salvation Mountain and Slab City, two atypical locations found in the Southern California desert near the Mexican border. The aesthetic of the book aims to translate the rigid atmosphere both locations possess, and give a glimpse of the unique environment. The book is made out of only recycled materials. The text of the book is called the "East Jesus Survival Guide" which can be found here.
RE- was featured and on display in the 2017 UCLA Design and Media Arts Undergraduate Exhibition. This book was also the recipient of the 2018 Emma B. Keller scholarship at UCLA.
