Dot Krause often begins a series with a prototype in book form, as pictured above. The images that follow are from the related series "body + soul." introduced at the Danforth Museum of Art in the Spring of 2003. Body + soul began with a series of photographs taken of twin performance artists. The works were printed on substrates such as polycarbonate, wrinkled tin nailed to plywood, and even antique lead ceiling tiles.
She writes "I have combined traditional and digital media. My work embeds archetypal symbols and fragments of image and text in multiple layers of texture and meaning. It combines the humblest of materials with the latest in technology to evoke the past and herald the future."
