5 Minute Systematic Journey Book
I created this book to express a journey that I took around Birmingham. I systematically recorded the journey by taking a photograph of my surroundings at 5 minutes intervals. The camera was angled upwards towards the sky, as this was my perspective throughout my journey. The book folds out to give the viewer a sense that they are entering into a different place and going on the same journey that I went on. This book has been selected for both the Tate Britain archive and the Regional College of Art archive. I have also used the same system and form to create a book based upon a journey in Edinburgh and I have sold copies of both books at various specialised artists’ books fairs.
