Tsunagu-Book: My favorite Book    2009   Books, charcoal, washi paper on a wooden shelf (shelf  10" x 4.5" x 1")  Six hundred individuals lent their favorite book, then each book was covered with one of six hundred tree bark patterns created on washi paper (by charcoal-rubbed tree surfaces). The “favorite” books span generations, nationalities and borders. When the exhibition was over each book was sent back to the owner with my original cover and put back onto their bookshelves.
