Title Description - Following in the tradition of artists’ books in the form of scrapbooks, Bulk offers a collection of diary entries, snapshots, cut outs from newspapers and magazines and found pieces of paper on which the artist has written. This assortment of images suggests a travelogue, or rather thoughts on traveling while both in transit and back at home. While this book may have some similarities to other artists’ books in its genre, it is unique in its form. The pages are hole punched and bound with glue. As such, they can be removed and reorganized by the reader in a ring binder. 29 June 2009 (
