"A place where thought happens"

Commissioned by The Edinburgh International Book Festival, this 3D construction incorporates an assemblage of found imagery and objects into a book form of lead, laid on a painted backdrop. The book form represents a 'New Scottish Enlightenment', envisaged by Faith Liddell, then Director of EIBF, while the backdrop represents an abstracted city plan, overlaid with symbolism.
