Dissected Library: Altered Books Fragments
Don't Let Anyone
If The Sea
The fragments are altered books of an intimate size that fit comfortably in your hand - they can (usually) stand upright or hang on a nail. Each one carries a short message/verse/saying/thought composed from words culled from that and/or other altered books.
The process is akin to fishing for words in a sea of books - sometimes they float to the surface and, in a sense, find me - sometimes they’re found by carefully combing through pages - sometimes I have to compose an allusive word by cobbling together parts of other words. I consider these Book Fragments to be thought momentos of these little creative journeys.
