Bukowski Would Be Proud

Bukowski Would Be Proud is an experimentation in the manipulation of the feminist narrative, told through collage of antique erotica. I wanted to create a piece that echoed the delicate and personal nature of both the imagery and the narrative. The final piece measured 6 in by 6 in, easily fitting into the palm of the reader. The small size of both the book and the type used forces the reader to interact with the piece in a very intimate manner. This forces the reader into an almost uncomfortable relationship; it is meant to seem as if they are stumbling into a private moment between the authors and themselves.
