SEE MY PROCESS
What is the effect of the e-reader on the physical book? New technologies have forced this question many times in the past. What was the effect of the invention of photography on painting, radio on print or television on radio? Older technologies were forced to redefine themselves or face extinction.
Books are being redefined as we speak and book artists are the front line in this evolution. As a book artist, I embrace the new freedom for the book. What is a book? Does a book have pages, a spine, a cover? Is the only purpose of a book to convey information? By using traditional binding styles my work remains in the book genre. The lack of content and sculptural form, however, starts a dialogue about the question that is the basic premise of my work, "What is a book?"
