It’s Back! Altered Book page 24 Waiting Behind the Door

pages 23 and 24
pages 23 and 24

Yes it’s back (after 5 months absence) and I WILL finish it eventually!  I actually completed another page today and I fully intend to crack on with it.  One of the problems I have been turning over is how to display these pages.  I may do a slide show of them.  That may solve the problem of putting lots of links to different pages.  I don’t know yet, I will have to see.

I left off at page 23 and the installation/performance artist Mona Hatoum.

The muffled voice coming through the veil or a gag: communicating.  This has become a confessional, or a secret.  I bore in mind the text  ‘He heard the key turn in the door’  The cut out leaves are from some paper I have.  The idea to put leaves behind this door came from the opposite page (p.23) where the text refers to  them –

‘Back in his own room, he wound the tape back to PLAY.  Nothing for long seconds.  Then a rustling like leaves, then his voice wrapped up as if he was talking through cloth.’

I then threaded some beads on wire to make a ‘key’.  The text at the bottom says;-

“Pop said ” We’re just going to have a little talk”

What artist am I going to link to this page?  Well, it’s not going to be just one…’s going to be a whole movement!  And it’s got to be POP!

Continued tomorrow…

Media used; white  ink wash, acrylic paint, cardboard window, beads, wire,
