Jacqueline Rush Lee - Endoskeleton 2000

Jacqueline is a Hawaiian artist who uses a vast number of experimental techniques to transform books such as kiln firing which she has perfected and soaking books in water winding them into wheel or square shapes. I alike Jacqueline have an interest in book art. I have used similar processes such as soaking books in water as i am fascinated in the crinkles, and indentations that are revealed when the book is removed from the plaster cast. By soaking old books ive also discovered that the ink bleeds into the plaster so leaves a 'ghost-like' text embedded onto the plaster surface.
