Impossible calibrations of an imaginary Sherry

2011 - Artist book

Impossible calibrations of an imaginary Sherry is an artist book published in 2011 as part of the Dutch Art Institute’s publication program and designed in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie in Arnhem.

It consists out of photographs taken of a miniature model with a darkroom on the left side that connects to an artist studio on the right. The photographs below were, amongst others, used as inspiration for these rooms.

The Maquette itself is inhabited by an imaginery version of a person who is dealing with issues that refer to the concept of this book. The book comes with a little magnifier glass to enable the viewer to see more details.
