Re: [BKARTS] Book or Sculpture?



Thanks everyone for their feedback/insights-- I will keep them all in mind :)

I am especially drawn to John Cutrone's response concerning the element of progression, similar maybe to the action of guiding.   I think (like the aspiring artist at JCBA?) I have difficulty appropriating definitions into conventional forms and this is causing me issues when the medium calls for linear-thinking.  
Is this a common problem for others too when they're starting on a book idea?

...Brian Dettmer's work looks incredible.  Thanks for that.

Hi Lisa,

Not sue if this is on the same track as you were thinking. But Brian
Dettmer is amazing and his work is simply spectacular.

When I finished with the mock-up, I noticed I had   deconstructed the form of the book and it seems more like a sculpture.  Now I've been attempting to pull the piece back into a "book" form.  Am I making sense?
