Rethinking Cornell.

Back to Cornell. A small change of plan to the back board. I have exchanged the original boarder with wood. More in keeping with the work of Cornell and stronger. The joints are a little uneven, cut with a very basic jig, the screws will be covered with leather pads. The leather pads will help to protect a table surface and the book. I am truly having great fun with this binding. Exploring depth and surface. Moving away from the expected, I hope.

Cornell, holes and eyes.

Trying to get the correct balance of sand and speed for the front board has been more time than I imagined. The glass has been cut and the final stages of construction can begin.

The whole work is becoming hypnotic. The movement of the sand, the gentle sound and the the notion that the finished work/binding will never be the same is arresting.

Filming this is going to be fun.

Cornell, two holes and a corner.

After the working break in Tokyo back to the bench and Cornell.
