This work is inspired by Stephen Hawking's writing on black holes in his popular 1988 book A Brief History of Time. Each aspect of this book — the modified case binding, the monochromatic palette, the progressive distortion of letterforms from page spread to page spread — works to suggest the mystery and unknowable vastness of the cosmological phenomenon that are black holes.
2017. Gouache on Hahnemühle Ingres paper, embroidery thread, book cloth, book board. Modified hard cover single section binding structure. 10¼” x 10¼” x ¼”
