Abstract:

"[A] non-scientific science book about the imaginary cellular composition of the human body. Fourteen cells are illustrated: Anger, Curiosity, Failure, Fear, Jealousy, Joy, Knowledge, Location, Love, The Past, Success, Talent, Trust, Work. The cell images are vibrant multi-block and reduction linoleum prints with a diagram explaining how each cell operates ... imaginary, emotional cellular structures that might 'make up' a person ... wrote text for each cell using indirectly scientific language. To further support the pseudo-scientific nature ... I used a non-digital form of image creation for the cells--multi-block linoleum cuts"--Artist's statement at the Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on February 12, 2016.
