For my artworks I often bury paper for several weeks in the earth. After the excavation, the paper looks very weathered. The paper can be torn here and there and glued again; there may also be holes in it from acorns, twigs or stones in the ground. It is a job to get the paper dry and "clean" with patience afterwards. My fascination for rust provides new combinations.

After having sewn the signatures on Jute-rope, I buried the entire book in the earth for 2 weeks. The excavated book looks (medieval) old. I covered the boards with painter's cloth which lay in the earth for 2 months. The result is a very special book, partly due to the rusted book attachment on the front and back of the book.
Het was een heel leuk symposium en daarna opening van de expositie. Leuk stuk in de krant.
In de aarde na het naaien van de katernen.
Weer na 2 weken uit de aarde halen en beginnen met schoonmaken
Zo ziet het boek er dan uit.
