Sound Books (2014)


Series of three German spruce wood objects with different finishes.

20 x 20 x 20 cm

In 2014, I visited one of the oldest violin-making towns in Europe, Mittenwald, in the German Alps. At the town’s violin museum a book had been made of all the wooden materials used in the creation of a violin. The work, Sound books (tone wood), is inspired by this book and explores the imaginary, resonating qualities of tone wood. Both books – the museum’s and my own – suggest that marks, lines and tonal qualities of a material can assist in the act of navigating and reading, as letters are used in the act of reading a written story.
