This Quickening
January 27, 2018
This is Stephanie McCollough's thesis at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
The work questions the different ways in which we experience our potentialthrough three poems, which are interpreted in abstract forms pop-ups. The author underlines the richness of this non-verbal means of expression and the form of accomplishment that occurs at the opening of the fold: the reader activates the potential movement of the forms.
A superb creation to discover on the artist's website, where you can see the unfolding video!

Picking letters
January 14, 2018
Excerpt from the Book of Hours by Marguerite d' Orléans, circa 1430: The Arrest of Christ.

An incredible painting where peasants, pagani, pagans, pick up the letters of the Word...

To see more about this sumptuous manuscript, go to Gallica.

Carmina figurata
January 14, 2018
"The picture in the book", here is the new series of lectures given at the Arsenal library in Paris until February 12th (free registration, take advantage of it!).

The first session, with Anne Zali, questioned the De Laudibus sanctae Crucis written by Raban Maur in the 9th century. This collection of carmina figurata interweaves and superimposes images and texts, giving life and body to words. Poems in poems, in an architecture governed by the shape of the cross, creating several readings, several meanings.

These photographs offer you late copies of the manuscript:
Raban Maure, De Laudibus sanctae Crucis, Pforzheim, Thomas Anshelm, 1503.
Raban Maure, De Laudibus sanctae Crucis, manuscript for Rodolph II, circa 1600.

Final lighting
December 21, 2017
Finally, here's an illuminated version of the nice pinion. Thanks to a well-targeted lighting that highlights the trees in relation to each other, while leaving the feeling, perhaps, that autumn is barely finished under the freshly fallen snow...
Thanks to Jean-Philippe Rebotier for his interest in my pop-ups and his talent.
