We have never had a year of peace - Studio Visit Install

"We have never had a year of peace" is a three book encyclopedia about governmental data of the Americas. Into this is cut the dates and locations of every US Military intervention over the last ~100 years.

 

I just put up an installation of work at Eyebeam for Studio Visits. This is work I have been producing over the last 6 months. The work is primarily old found books cut with the laser cutter, as well as some laser cut drawings. Pictured above is the first of three books.

 

Sprinkled throughout are altered reference books. like taking Dictionaries and turning them into memorials. It is kind of like putting an ironic inscription on a tombstone...
