|The images in this zine are comprised
from a number of projects I undertook throughout a twelve month
period in order to try to understand the issues in the brief of
the Al-Mutanabbi Street Book Artists’ Project.
They range from a series of ‘lost letters’ that are
words cut from pages of a book on psychosomatics and reconstructed
in to messages, lost voices; to a photograph of protesters against
Gaddafi here in the market place of Durham in the northeast of England.
And a suspended book being slowly destroyed by absorbing oil from
a dish which was a project to think about books used as cultural
artefacts and containers of cultural identities.
