The Book That Makes Itself exposes it’s own production through it’s content and form. By personifying the book itself, Cameron articulates her artistic practice as both the subject (The Artist), agent and author. Moving through subjective perspectives, Cameron’s studio practice and participation in Graduate studies become transformative processes documented through descriptive narratives in constant dialogue with the form and materiality of the book. A significant and exemplary contribution to the field of Artist’s Books that investigates the nature of documentation, production, aesthetics, disclosure, narrative, education and artistic practice in an authentic exoskeletal publishing project. Self-Published, designed By Eric Wrenn with an essay by Kayla Guthrie.
