PULVER

Knowledge is impermanent, accumulated memories and ideas ultimately disappear. In written form it is also susceptible to decay, reducible to dust.  A number of texts were chosen and burnt, echoing historical instances of book-burning. Though this process was intended to render each text identical, differences in size, weight and combustibility produced variance in the remains. The product of each text was photographed and printed on paper coated with ashes prior to photographic emulsion.
