An Encyclopedia of Everything Turns 300 Books

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 4:30 0 Comments

20th July 2013.

I have started the collation (massive task!) and systematic documentation of all the works received for An Encyclopedia of Everything, for an on-line catalogue due for down loading when this installation is exhibited in October (D.V. at the KZNSA Gallery in Durban). Two highpoints stand out for me. One, the date of An Encyclopedia of Everything turning 100 books was 29th July 2013. This means that in just a year, over 200 books have been made and swopped and travelled…

Posted on March 4, 2011 at 20:32 3 Comments

I predominately make one-off unique books. When they are bought, they sit on shelves gathering dust, very seldom seeing the light of day. So now, once they are made, I cut them up and send them out as mail art into the world. A process based art practice.  The World is a Town, inspired by the Novgorod Codex was the first recycled hand made book to  suffer this fate. The second book to undergo the knife is Bones of Contention. This work originally took nine months to complete. In one…

ANYWAY!! I intend to disseminate this work as Mail Art. Everyone who sends me

Dear Cheryl,

Thanks so much for your very kind words about my book "10 Seconds of Falling" for your "Encyclopaedia of Everything" Collaboration.  And an unlimited thank you to you for triggering my new found interest in making books - resulting from that course you gave at The Labia some years ago.   :-)

Hi Cheryl,  thanks for the welcome.  I've had a look at your blog and your images are really intriguing and interesting.  I'm pretty new to the phenomenon of collaborative book arts, with my first project being BookArtObject2012.  I'm looking forward to doing more and "meeting" more interesting artists like yourself.  Kind Regards,  Robyn (rObfOs)
