In March I contributed to a limited edition book for the ARTBOOKART fair at Hofs (Hadleigh Old Fire Station) in March. Each ABA artist made 2 pages and then the pages were bound together.
You can see more about the project here.
I played with various ideas for a while.. but oh what to do, what to do?
Mapped some ideas and was drawn to the idea of blank pages… began thinking about the way 'this page is intentionally blank" is written on the pages of a legal document or exam papers but then is no longer so. Explored a few more ideas but came back to using the map itself as a way of plotting the thought process behind it.
The each of my second pages are individual. They are made from sections cut from the 'blank page' maps, texts and book pages I am currently using in other work .. they kind of represent the pinging back and forward between projects- a sort of physical mind mapping.
This has been sitting in the drafts file for a looong time (along with another 14 posts!! all waiting for the words ).. Should I just delete? Maybe- but it is good to have everything here should I need to find it one day..
In 2012 Camberwell MA Book Arts were invited to take our degree show to Kiev for the Second International Book Festival Arsenal. It was quite an honour - just wish I could have accompanied it.
I'm following my bliss.
