Shells Shelve S, Maintain FragilesArtist Book
Shells Shelve S, Maintain Fragiles is a series of fifteen miniature accordion books made in 2012. This artist book implements folding and cutting as its form, process, content, and editor. To explore these possibilities, discarded text is cut, folded, photographed, refolded, photographed again, until it becomes something new. The container is a small box formed by four flaps, two of which have been folded around a magnet. In this way, the unruly contents within can be protected from damage.
