F2 TYPHOON EUROFIGHTER 2012-13
a new floor installation - in progress
The paperbacks are stacked and glued in piles to a height of approx 40 cm. In the centre the books are carved by hand so that the pages and print are visible, to form a concave curve from the top of the books pile to the floor. As the curved surface reaches the floor it dissolves into paper dust. The whole forms a negative relief of a multi-role combat aircraft currently deployed in countries such as Libya, the Falkland Islands and Albania. Visitors can approach and touch the piece from all sides.
Carved from romantic and other novels.
Dimensions: 27 x 450 x 500 cm
