Fractured Landscapes

This split-page accordion book features a collage of images from original photographs by the artist, and was constructed with elephant hide, cardstock, suede, mulberry paper and geometric laser-printed labels. A Japanese inspired sewn spine completes the project.

Artists Laurie Spitz and Amee J. Pollack said: β€œThe split-page accordion structure houses images which began as original photographs of urban reflections or cars. The motivation for this piece was to find beauty even in unnatural, man-made surfaces of a modern, impersonal city. The structure allows the images to swing free and be seen in more than one permutation. It also affords the opportunity for the piece to be displayed like a star book, from a codex to a full 360 degree angle.”
