There’s nothing quite like the feeling, for the reader, when a book comes alive and the content inside the book stops being just words on the page. A manifestation of a breathing, living event with rare instances where the book not only lives in our mind but in the real world as well.
The books we love to read should be alive through time. Characters, we care deeply for, should jump out from the pages into our lives and tell us their stories. What we dream in our imagination, whilst reading a book, should be presented for the world to see.
It’s a tediously slow process, working on a miniature scale.
I work within the realm of fairy tales and folklore. I began creating a series of book sculptures, cutting out images from old books creating three-dimensional diorama and displaying them inside wooden boxes.
