My carved books series basis is an exploration into and meditation on the changing nature of communication. I systematically remove parts of pages of the book solely with a graphite pencil. Continuously drawing the shape(s) until the pencil breaks through the page to reveal the next page underneath. I save the carved out shapes from the pages as well as the pencils and their shavings. On display, the shapes, pencils and shavings are presented in a plastic bag as a kind of evidence for proof that the communication of the book did exist.
