Born in California in 1973, Karen Bleitz has been creating book works in England since 1997. Her Interactive and often sculptural books draw readers in by allowing them to alter or manipulate the page.

Books with machines, pop-ups, and magnets become dynamic stages where the reader actively participates in debates around issues that range from the evolution of language to the role of gender and the body in communication. The transformations that take place within the pages force her readers to 're-view' and experience the subjects from a changed perspective.
