ALEPH 1991-92

Edition: unique (750x550x1800mm)

An open book, made of two parts of a split beech, between which are 5 sheets of painted glass. The paintings do not overlap, so that the transparency of the material allows one to see the complete image when standing in front of it. Together they show the evolution/ origin of our Latin alphabet. The story revolves around the letter A which is derived from the hieroglyph depicting a bull. This work was commissioned by the OBD, a provincial central library service. It is on permanent display in the hall of their office building.
