Art Assignment 25 Artistic Alchemy
At first I was having some real difficulty ‘destroying’ (transforming) a book. I justified it in the end because this book was published in 1978 and a lot of the information in it will be obsolete. Still, I felt a little guilty as I carved stars in this book. However, as I worked I saw the potential for art.
I’m really pleased with my finished project. I really enjoy the fact that I can hide this art piece on my bookshelf. I love the idea of people discovering the art inside this book when they expected something usual. Art can so easily confound expectations.
PS – I learned how to hollow out a book here.
