Cat’s Cradle is an attempt to embody musings on the nature of existence. A visual/physical design reminiscent of the children’s string game commonly known as cat’s cradle, paired with text written by the artist, illustrates the interconnectedness of subconscious assumptions that are often made about the relationship of life and death. The book opens up to 30" and is made from laser cut book cloth and paper with digitally printed type.
