Description

Susurrus adapts the Fishbone Fold from The Art of the Fold into an elegant, whispering, sculptural creature. Five sheets of my handmade paper come together at four disguised joints. I letterpress printed each sheet with exclamation points and ampersands from wood type. The word “Susurrus” tracks the book’s spine. The folds of the pages, six per sheet (adapted from the 4 in Art of the Fold), obscure the word, helping to turn it from a statement into a texture that informs the overall movement and aesthetic of the work.

Materials:

paper, pigments, ink, tape
