Hinged is a series of artist’s books published on iBooks.
I used text, graphics, photographs, videos and sound as a way of re-thinking the nature of the book in the digital age. They comprise a spiritual memoir, a confession of sorts, and a self-portrait.
“…there is no self-portrait without confession. The author of the self portrait does not show herself; she does not teach anything….The self portraitist does not lead one to knowledge, she admits a fault and asks for forgiveness. She makes truth…throws light on it, in order to make the love of God grow within her.”
—Jaques Derrida, Memoirs of the Blind: The Self-Portrait and Other Ruins
