The books were damaged in a flood some years back. I’m so glad I kept them because this demonstrates my philosophy so well. Yes it was sad to lose their function as books, but allow yourself to appreciate their beauty in this state of decay and you will see that they are also something organic. The twists, curves and colour changes that resulted have taken their form from something man-made to natural. Our possessions, thoughts, way of life and words will someday be dissolved by the march of time.
