A project exploring the book as a technology.
It comprised of several performances, the invention of a number of new tools, interviews, documentary and fictional histories. It was funded by Arts Council England and presented at Waterman’s Art Centre for Buffalo University’s E-poetry symposium. An ebook of the project can be found here.
Commissioned for Phoenix Gallery’s Press and Release exhibition. The audio book consists of a series of recordings of spaces where people are reading. Each recording was made in a novel way pertaining to some element of the book being read. The book can be listened to here http://www.boca2mouth.net/makingbooks/ebook/#12
Reverse 3D printer
Invented book making technique. Reverse 3D printing is a laborious and pointless process whereby an object is sliced into paper thin slices and prints are made of each cross section. The object is then ‘reassembled’ by stacking the prints in the correct order, rendering it as a 3d ink model trapped within the pages. The process was demonstrated over a week long performance titled C’est Toujours Une Pipe as part of CAC Gallery’s Work Programme residency.
