Intentions for this piece..
Our task was to create a book that physically embodied its plot. The story I selected is about a family that move into a new house and find themselves stuck as each time they open a door in the house the layout has changed. The family are stuck in a labyrinth with no way to get out. To represent this within the structure of the book itself I cut out chunks of the book so that for each chapter the pages move position/alignment in the same way that the rooms in the house do. Additionally I cut a door shape out of the back cover to resemble the fact that the family in the story are trying to find their way back to the front door. I thought that this could work as a flap that opens and reveals the blurb for the book. The front cover consists of two layers to again reinforce the idea of a maze/labyrinth with never ending layers.
