The Wayward Universe

The Wayward Universe The Wayward Universe, 2014; Hand-made Book with Gouache, Honey, Milk, Semen, and Photocopy; 11” x 8 ½” x ¼”

Marcel Duchamp has a piece called Paysage Fautif (The Wayward Landscape), it consists of semen on plexiglass backed by black satin. Rather than just a wayward landscape I wanted to make an entire universe. Into a circular black void I gave birth to a universe with masculine material (semen), a feminine material (milk), a material to represent flora and fauna (honey), and a material to represent art (gouache). There are 30 pages, my age when making the book.
