"Precarious Life: The Powers of Mourning and Violence" is authored by Judith Butler. In this book, Butler explores the themes of grief, vulnerability, and violence, particularly in the context of the post-9/11 world.
    The book's design, echoing the 'twin voids' of the 9/11 Memorial, reflects themes of 'life,' 'fragility,' and 'violence,' resonating with the concepts of fragility, mourning, and violence in our society.
    The 'life' theme is conveyed through a collage of botanical and floral fragments, signifying the vibrancy and organic nature of existence. Their imageries are intentionally dispersed, alluding to the fragility of life.
    Superimposed on this botanical backdrop are two large square shapes, printed to create an effect of depth and containing die-cut elements. These squares and their voids are a metaphorical nod to the emptiness of the 9/11 Memorial voids and are intricately linked to the the concept of violence and vulnerability. This design underscores the duality of life– its fragility and the strength.

《危脆生命》 (朱迪斯.巴特勒 Judith Butler 著 )的設計啟發自 9/11 紀念館的兩個空洞的空間 ( twin voids )。 設計嘗試捕捉「生命」、「脆弱」、「危脆」和「暴力」 這些抽象的概念,並且將這些概念相互交織。
    設計創造了由各種植物和花卉碎片衍生出的圖像,象徵著有機的生命。然而,這些圖像是故意分散和散落的,在暗示生命的脆弱的概念。
    在植物圖像上,用印刷效果壓印出兩個大正方形空間。正方形內包含切孔(Diecut)效果,以象徵 9/11 紀念碑的空洞(emptiness)。這些正方形和它們的空洞象徵著生命的雙重性:脆弱和堅韌。
