Five marble sculptures have been made using reclaimed plaques in the shape of books. Words are literally carved in stone giving them a sense of gravitas. However, as the object is seen as well as read, the combination of word and image as a means of communication highlights the complex and transient nature of knowledge and understanding. The work also considers how the human pursuit of knowledge rather than deter death only mirrors the nature of death in that both are never satisfied.
