Visual Pleasure

Year: 2012

Designer: Shelby Head

Materials: book


In the winter of 2012, Head began using the book as an art object. The page lends itself to an internal and external dialogue using layers to hide and reveal content where idea over object and the beauty of form are at play. Head uses the versatile, flexible and ordinary material of paper to create a visual interpretation of text, material, form and content.
