a folded pamphlet book


This book formed part of my MA final project and outlined my thoughts.

Language touches books, which in turn touch surfaces. These surfaces form a space. These surfaces carry the message of the book. To the surface of the eye. To the surface of the brain. Even the surface of the table lends its meaning of place to a book and in turn our reading of it. My aim is to allow the book a site to speak ideas through the strength of space. The book has a space to offer and to understand this space we have to think of the book as a site in and outside of itself. A space beyond the book, which is also the book. In which we can explore or revaluate the book in relation to ourselves.
