“Energy isn’t neither created nor destroyed, only is transformed”
The first law of thermodynamics states that the total amount of energy in a closed system (for example in matter) cannot be created not destroyed, though it can be change from one form to another.
People throw away old books all the time or plenty of books are stagnant for years. As humans we constantly created new objects, new ideas, new books. Is a book purpose to read it once? Check it out few times more and maybe lend it to someone else and repeat… but what happens with the paper used to print ideas, pictures, past memories. The paper itself can be used for more. We lived in a world where sustainability could become our life motto. My Collages are meant to make use of those images in books that people decide to consume and then storage or even forget, newness is ephemeral. All the books I’m using for my collages I’ve gotten them for free, people wanted to get rid of them and give them away. I create new images from them, new ideas, new compositions, just following nature’s law.
