Text on side one:knots tangles fankles impasses disjunctions whirligogs binds (Text by R.D. Laing)
Text on side two:I am doing it The it I am doing is The I that is doing it The I that is doing it is The it I am doing It is doing the I that am doing it I am being done by the it I am doing it is doing it
I made a varied edition of this little book while I was at Penland in June and just got around to photographing the inside.
(Letterpress flexagon, typewriter, thread)
See you in Portland in October. !!!
Also, I would just like to note that I strongly suspect that this is the only candid photo of Molly Coleman in existence.
“One is afraid of / the self that is afraid of”
“the self that is afraid of / the self that is afraid”
“One may perhaps speak of reflections. / (text by R.D. Laing)”
I made this book under the guidance of Barb Tetenbaum using text from R.D. Laing’s book Knots. I was inspired by a slide presentation by the weaving instructor during my session, Peggy Hart. I realized that I don’t know anything about weaving, and this made me realize that I’m unaware of my lack of knowledge about probably infinite other things. And then I think in circles.
A lot of things became more clear to me while making this book: it’s ok to ground ideas by using someone else’s text, it’s good to play and simplify, I’m really interested in incorporating fibers into my work, and I want to make more traditional codices. Even though this is a lepporello.
Hope you all are doing great. xoxo
So it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I worked, I moved, I worked some more. I grew my yoga practice.
I’ve been thinking a lot about grad school. I am going to make a lot of artwork this year. I got a work-study scholarship (!!!!!) to Penland for a letterpress and bookmaking workshop this summer. I am ready.
Anyways, I’ve been playing with clay a little bit! I can’t decide whether the finished product will be a print, photo, part of an animation, or just the clay object itself. Maybe I’ll paint it. Maybe I’ll do all of these things.
