Ephemeral Texts
2003
A series of small books of which the pages have been treated with one material each. These are materials that I regularly put on or come into contact with my body. These materials are absorbed through my pores and enter my body. These materials are placed onto the surface of the pages of the books. Each book bends and curls as the grain in the paper shrinks and swells, becoming sculptural ephemeral texts.

MEDIUM AND SIZE: Materials on vellum. 6" x 6" x 2" [15.24 x 15.24 x 5 cm]. Series of fifteen in unlimited edition.
