butterfly body, i.e., scroll with 3 leaves); 22 x 29 x 2 cm.

[2] of scroll. – Materials: ceramic, fabric, fiber paper, beads, kiwi vines, cinnamon. – “Psyche” is a book made butterfly. It has mind, soul and body. The butterfly’s mind is the scroll. It has antennas and explains the concept of the story. The soul is represented by the wings. They are light, ethereal and unattached to the body. Their content reveals a mythological story. The butterfly’s body is the physical entity, the place where soul and mind live.” – Artist’s statement. – “Edition No. 1/2, MMIII, Surfside, Florida” – Colophon]

Colussy, Kathleen
TEXTiles: [the scarlet thread: my story] / by Kathleen Colussy. –
[Weston, FL: The Artist], 2003.
1 scroll; 42 x 13 x 7 cm.

[“. . . this work began as a photograph. The photo was further enhanced digitally and printed directly onto canvas. Next oil painting and other methods of surface interest were added to the piece, which was finally mounted inside of bullet proof glass. Finally the original image was enlarged and further enhanced and printed this time onto crepe de chine fabric. . . . the book (scroll) [was] produced specifically for the Bienes Center. The completed book reflects a“series” of works made by the artist during the course of 2003. Many of the works have also been printed onto fabric and sewn into kimono . . . As you can see, I love to blur the boundaries of the traditional and the digital. In the titles you see the humor and irony of attempting to be justified as an artist in a world that seems to only understand conventional art paradigms. I am sure many of us have experienced similar challenges in other areas of life; my work is an expression of those emotions, thoughts and beliefs as well as how to incorporate them into my art in a way that is honest, transparent and, hopefully, thought provoking.” – Artist’s statement. – Edition of 2]

Cortada, Xavier
Waist-ed / by Xavier Cortada. – [Miami, FL: The Aritist], 2003.
1 v. (unpaged); 28 x 22.5 x 1 cm.

[Spiral bound. – “. . . photographed digitally and reproduced into a 63 page book. There will be 125 editions: one AP; and one for every day the waist-ed project lasted during 2003. – Artist’s statement. – “No hungry child in the Third World has ever had to wonder if I’d be “eating everything on my plate.” For people like me, one serving is actually never enough. Waist-ed is a chronicle of food uneaten; food I stored in clear, plastic bags; food which I would have otherwise ingested at mealtime. Bagging the excess makes me pause, stops me from having seconds – a lesson reinforced as the baggies, heavy with wasted calories, accumulate. Overeating, like other forms of over-consumption, is a disturbing societal trend that hurts us individually and, by disproportionately wasting precious resources, contributes to global disparities.” p. 3]
