BOOKBURN / Storyboards Archive

“The use of watercolor is an important part in the search for lucidity with the spontaneous ‘accident’ of the medium serving as a possible guide,” explains George. His watercolors have been created as “an attempt to figure out an atmosphere and ideas for staging.”

Storyboards for shards

The Unnamed Shards are sculptures of books burned past all recognition. Though no two are the same, they are all similar in size and their power is in numbers. Displayed side by side in a long line, on a long (perhaps segmented) table, the Unnamed Shards testify to the sheer, inestimable number of destroyed works and destroyed ideas. They invite the viewer to grapple with this as well, and perhaps to begin a conversation about preservation and communication replacing destruction and silence.
