Sculpture – Binding

Binding

2011 – 2014

A series of book sculptures created in collaboration with Susannah Pickering. Binding was originally produced for the first Brass Book exhibtion in an edition of ten.  The work combines traditional binding techniques with CAT 5 cables, the cabling systems that are commonly used to transmit digital information. The result is this series of alternative electronic books. The work acknowledges the visual and tactile attributes of the book as a technology, largely ignored in the formats currently adopted by digital and electronic books. Binding has been shown at several exhibitions across the UK and sculptures in the series have been acquired by the Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize Collection, the Artist’s Book Collective Collection and the Wiener Library for the study of the Holocaust and Genocide’s Book Art Collection.
