Since 2015, I have been exploring ‘book’ as a medium for triggering thoughts, transitioning from analogue to digital, challenging public and private spaces, allowing intimate & communal experiences.

I started decluttering our office and was thinking about how to respond to the monthly challenge of the bookbinding meetup: METAL! It all happened quickly, I thought if I am throwing old devices or tech bits, I may as well open and rip them off to see what is inside. Wanders! Things we never see, cause we’ve been told to never open for warranty reasons or making things worse! Anyway, I found stripping things thoroughly enjoyable and began a series of OBSOLETE books made with parts of old hard disks, zip drives, cables. I embarked in a totally new adventure!

While making the first ‘Obsolete’ books, I was listening to Yuval Noah Harari‘s audio books ‘Sapiens’, ‘Homo Deus’ and ’21 Lessons for the 21st Century’, which stirred me.

At the same time, I took up making jewellery with these electronic parts with a collaborator, inspired by her amazing creativity for juxtaposing elements! Photos of the jewellery in next post.
