Artist Inspiration

Rachel Whiteread - Jewish memorial in Vienna
The Jewish memorial is a concrete library made up of row after row of outward facing books. The structure is unique in that the viewer can see the books closed pages instead of the spine of the cover which is how books are normally assembled on library bookcases. Whiteread's initial plan was to make the concrete less porous as she wanted the rain to get in therfore ageing the structure giving it a 'sorry appearance.'
This piece of work influenced my material choice of plaster when casting books as it captures every crease, indentation and individual page edges.
