ARTIST BOOK

AN INVESTIGATION INTO COLLECTING

Using The Church’s “Under the Milky Way” as a base narrative, the idea of collecting objects despite unknown motivations is explored though an interactive book object. The lyrics were found and cut from vintage books and accompanied by a diverse range of objects and ephemera. The accordion structure conveys the bringing together of disparate elements and invites the audience to explore and discover through participation. Dry point etchings of constellations suggest navigation and the concept of being directed by the unknown; patterns of stars are meaningless yet have stories applied to them to help us find our way.
