The Skin I Live In (Artist Book)

The Skin I Live in (Artist Book) 2011
by s. arden hill
Japanese stab bound

Cover: modge podge, gel medium, aerosol, dry transfer letters, and thread
Pages: mystery.

This book was inspired by a conversation with Joe Kalturnyk about Peter Eisenman’s theoretical house in which you could not enter. Like Foucault notion of what you can not see being more exciting/interesting than what you can see, Eisenman space is expected behind the walls of the house, hinted at by a small visible space. The Skin I Live in, being Japanese stab bound and transparent suggests something is locked with the cover but what is “the pages” is left a mystery.
