Stick & Stones

In my series of pulped and shredded books, I literally reshape the content of selected old books by making papier maché balls, organ-like objects and cubes out of the shredded pages, then sew the contents back inside and outside of the original book covers. Bits and pieces of the original text remain, although the literal meaning is lost. The covers can no longer contain their unruly "text," and form defines content.
