the translation



































About the size of a playing card "the translation" is the latest little work to fly to Finland. Although Carina and I, both speak several languages, English is our common one. The book is made from different kinds of papers, of different sizes and textures. It includes text in different languages and is an attempt to show the differences and similarities in translating.

Love the use of foreign text and colorful "white space."

Thank you for your comments Miss Iowa. The text is from the paper patterns like Simplicity, Burda or Butterick. The thin paper becomes almost invisible when you glue it with PVA.
