I was screaming and no one could hear....

At long last I have some in process photos of the artist book I have been working on for the past month. It is based on a sound wave of my voice saying the words "I was screaming and no one could hear". The structure is the folding structure that I learned from Melissa Jay Craig, and the paper is handmade kozo sheets made with Eastern sheet formation. It is all hand-embroidered; as you can see I still have a lot more to go.

Ultimately the book will be housed in a handmade drop-spine box, also containing a hidden arduino lilypad which will allow for the viewer's interaction to reveal part of the title.

This is the mock-up; you can see that the book can open further.

This is the book in its current state.
