Art Metropole is proud to publish the second in our series of Bookcovers by Artists.
Lucy Pullen’s piece is a custom made dust-jacket, fabricated out of a reflective material. Reflective Dust-jacket has its roots in Pullen’s ongoing series of photographs in which one thing in the frame is illuminated. When photographed, reflective material returns a burst of light from flash to camera, causing a disturbance in the film. An aura appears on film, in lieu of the object. To see more photographs in this series please visit www.samplesize.ca.
The series Bookcovers by Artists began in 2002 with Honey I rearranged the collection, by Allen Ruppersberg, a poster designed to be wrapped around a book.
