Artists' Statement: In looking at the original book Running Free, I wanted to make a book that would give the feeling of freedom. Originally, I tore out all the pages of the book in hopes that I would have inspiration from the one book. Eventually, I tore out every single page of each book that is shown. The freedom in tearing out a piece of art written by a person was liberating in the sense that I had the control of what books to destroy. Ultimately, the empty books make a neverending circle of freedom and emptiness.
