Book Stills

Book/Stills & Play/Book


Bookstills came into being with my own books. From L’opera minora, first, where the pages played on the visual and the … to Later, I was like, hey, if people don’t want to hold a whole book in their hand and read it, let’s put it on the floor, and on the walls, two pages at a time, nailing the whole book into the wall. Soon, The way of nailing, the type of wall the space of the appearance, all created an impact, and the ensemble, the type of book, the place, the scale, the material of the nail, etc… all became part of the overall significane. Again, public, and private. As always, there is an intersection here with the phothaneh, and the lite works


A series of operations wrought upon the book object, and various parts of the book object: its function, its valuation, its components, its physical types, its historical importance, its cultural meaning and the meanings associated with those who play with them, the works in this series touch on the theory and history of the book as markers of meaning and creators of universes, as playthings and decorations, as dispensable stuff and holders of glorious works. Educational at its corps, it is also a critical apparatus engaging with the fields and institutions that function around the book. And, o yeah: the experience of this audience within this work is not only playful, but turns into, a play. Yep.
