When I was 10 I was given a miniature Holy Bible for my First Holy Communion. It had a little brass cover with a tiny loop I assume was for attaching to a key chain or necklace. More an amulet than a book, it was nearly impossible to properly open, and the text far too small to read without a magnifying glass. It was not really a book, but merely the idea of a particular book, a portable cue to remind me of the importance of the compacted information it contained.

The work that I am showing at Optica appears as two collections of books. However, assembled out of digital prints, coloured construction paper and scotch tape, these books exist as merely surface. Physically empty of information, they behave unlike the many books we have come to known. Instead, they are filled with the mere idea of what a book is meant to be.
