Angels of the North @ Greenbelt

Man cannot live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Recently I have had the desire to explore one specific stage of the paper making process. The stage when the fibers are destroyed is known as mastication. This function is also performed by the human mouth to process food. It is a process of understanding linking the feelings of hunger to the physical activity by the body.

The central theme for this work was in response to the 400th anniversary of the King James Version Bible. In an attempt to understand the word of God by knowing it with the body I attempted to physically consume the words and document this process using the presence and absence of light.
