Fahrenheit 2345

Mixed media

2008

I was inspired by François Truffaut’s movie depiction of Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451. There is a moment the “firemen” were raiding people’s homes and burning books and they pulled out a portable grill on which to burn the books upon. They used fire to destroy books. As a lover of books as well as clay, I was eager to explore the idea of creating books with fire.
