I began the course with a love of working with paper and for the process of making books but with my heart firmly rooted in sculpture. The more I began to explore what a book is or could be the harder the concepts seemed grasp ... the possibilities seemed endless but sometimes confusing and I am still learning.
A turning point was finding a copy of “THE NEW ART OF MAKING BOOKS” by Ulises Carrión in it Carrion writes..
"WHAT A BOOK IS
A book is a sequence of spaces.
Each of these spaces is perceived at a different moment - a book is also a sequence of
moments. A book is not a case of words, nor a bag of words, nor a bearer of words......"
It was with these words echoing in the back of my mind that I worked on the final project. and what I once thought of as sculpture also became book.
