Sweet Nothings

Sweet Nothings is an altered version of the Penguin poetry edition of Shakespeare’s Sonnets. Incisions have been made between the words of each of the 154 sonnets to create a lattice into which blank strips of paper have been woven on both sides of each leaf, covering (or deleting) all the text.

2009, woven book leaves, 22 x 14 x 10.5cm
