wood, plexiglass, book pages

Degrees of Separation is a piece that comprises all the dedication pages that were in the books of my personal library while studying in Geneva.
These pages were ripped from their book’s bodies, from their origin and context. To those books something is lacking – the name of the person that its author wished to fixate and unite to their work. To the pages here exhibited, their whole context and environment is missing, they appear to be simply names, anonymous titles and common places of human relationships. The separation is highlighted.
Sunlight, by travelling through the piece, shows us another dimension of it, drawn by the shadows of pages – expanding and distorting throughout the day – floating together without the written part that differentiated them.
