Floating Worlds
Drawings and text by Helen Chellin
215 pages
I created drawings and text while reading source books. These images then are placed in a reclaimed and recycled host book. The stories of each book are told here while creating a new version as a combination of the three.
The books are then rebound and a new outer housing is created to hold all.
There are two source books for Floating Worlds. The first is Floating World by James Michener. The Second is Pitcairn's Island by Nordnoff and Hall. The Floating Girl by Sujata Massey is the host book.
