The Sensitive and Vegetable Souls: a Bestiary
This Bestiary is a genealogical palimpsest from a parallel universe, with the construction of an antique tintype album. Twenty C-print photographs depicting “beasts”, set in die-cut windows, are bound into a corkskin cover, 6”x7”x3”, with a sterling silver closure sculpted especially for the project. Biographies of the beasts and their intergenerational history are annotated by fountain pen, typewriter, and silkscreen, and elaborated with inserted ephemera.
Variable edition of 30 copies, 2001. $1800.
