about this work
An anonymous book, untitled, nameless, faceless lies on a sacramental pedestal. Years of imbibed knowledge within these pages over the years become reasons for incitement. Made of carbonized mild steel, the book sits on a wooden pedestal containing a heating element, emitting heat and light.
