Statement Piece

I have been inspired by the works of art I have been witnessing. I have a copy of a book that has already been partly destroyed, and is now unreadable, so I don’t feel bad destroying the rest of it.

I shredded the pages, and then pasted them back together, inside the cover of the book. You can see that the book exists,but you cannot read it. This is to represent what the banning of books does, it bans the physical copy not the over arching idea.

At first, I wanted to use it to send to the Capitol. But, then I realized it was just doing to fall on deaf ears. So, I decided to keep it with me, and use it in my teachings. It’s also good because I needed something to show to my superiors that I have been working. Hopefully they like it, I’m not ready to be sent back yet!
