Altered Book: Without the Heart, There Can be no Understanding Between the Hand and the Mind

    Newer Older

    This is probably the longest title I've ever given to a finished piece, but it sums up some of the thoughts that inspired it. In case you recognize the words, this is the quote at the end of Madonna's video for Express Yourself.

    I have more details shots and a write up about this book on my blog.

    Materials used: book, inkjet print of photo, gel medium, plastic apple, wooden puppet arms, red thread, rubber stamp and ink, and pins.

      I just mailed this off yesterday and was sad to see him go. This one has inspired a larger scale piece which I may make myself crazy making.

      Kai, the quote kept popping into my head as I was working on it.
