BOOKWORKS
The term up-cycling refers to a process of repurposing an object to enhance its value. Bookworks are inspired by this philosophy. The books have come from many places: estate sales, charity drives, personal donations, book fairs and independent book shops. Most were damaged and tired. By up-cycling these books, I hope to ‘reframe’ and repurpose them while respecting their past lives. I am inspired by the textures of these papers and the way they feel in the hand. In an increasingly digital world, it is with joy that I invite you to share in this experience, and to bring your own stories with you as you consider my work.
