(lineament • book/ball) | 1994
ball wound from strips of text, book, wood and glass vitrine
In this transformation of a book, a block of printed text was cut with switchback lines and lifted from the page in a continuous line. As the cavity of the book was emptied and became a negative space, the text was wound by hand into a three-dimensional sphere. This process linked the mutual processes of creation in making and unmaking text and textile. Originally enacted as a performative process in the installation lineament, 1993, the method was recreated to publish (lineament · book/ball) as an edition.
