Ghostlines Book and Other Work

I’ve been busy working this week on an edition of 16 book works for the PULP ATLAS exhibition this coming autumn. Each book features two slips of paper, one embossed, the other imprinted with two map-type images of sites on the Suffolk coastline. Combined, the two slips represent the process of long shore drift, where sediment is transported along the coast in a southerly direction.  The map that is imprinted relates to the area from which sediment is being lost, and the map that is embossed relates to the area where the sediment ends up. Erosion and accretion. Simple idea really, but I have enjoyed the process of making lines by manipulating paper rather than by marking them out by other methods.

I have also been working on a set of stencils for some larger scale embossed pieces. These will form part of the practice element of my MRes thesis. These have been a real labour of love, hand cramps, cut fingers the works. Finally finished them though, now the search for suitable paper begins…
