A bound risograph book and a letterpress sheet held together on a foil blocked board with an elastic band


I was struck by the transformative space filling nature of the book. Once opened it can stretch in all directions. Filling the 3D space much more effectively than the 2D one. I likened this idea of expansion and growth from a centre, to that of a spider plant. The plant stretches out 360° from its base in the ground. Turning pages in a book stretches the pages 360° from its base on the table or your hand. Reaching in and reaching out in equal measure. Moving in and out. Reaching around and within.
