10″ x 8″ x 0″

A fanciful tribute to superstition, The Exorcism of Page Thirteen series documents my ongoing fascination with the number 13. To ensure good luck and prevent uninvited circumstances, I cut the page number + surrounding text from every book in my library, cutting away its small dark presence at the page’s bottom. When the squares are collaged into grids, poetry emerges. Currently there are 50+ works in the series.
