Title: Circa 1907 – The Book
Medium: Book in perspex along side performed monologue.
Date of work: January 2018
This work was as result of a period of in depth research into the past of this specific book. Examining how much one object can tell you about its past. 1907 Greek textbook witch arrived in Aberystwyth in 1922 with a student of the University and is unlikely to have left since. I created three characters from the names of past owners and what I knew and could interpret about them from what they written in the book. By means of a spoken performance I introduced the audience to them.
