TOAST: A Night on Weevil Lake
An event held on World Book Night, Saturday 5th March 2011, in tribute to Douglas Coupland's novel The Gum Thief, an evening of nothing being cooked, Chinese food having to be ordered in and eaten off of paper plates from Staples. Collaborators were asked to send photos of toast, produce music, write 200 words from the perspective of a piece of toast, to make things on the night etc.

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…Continue
