This book is made with wool that has been felted over fabric, bound by thread. Felting, which involves repeatedly strikng the wool with a set of barbed needles, seemed like an appropriate manner in which to create a book on ritual. The book's visual narrative explores the ways in which the order and repetition of ritual allows for greater awareness of inexorable change. This content was particularly influenced by my current meditation practice.
RiTUAL. A ceremonial act ~ Rites used in the course of worship ~ The performance of ceremonial acts ~ The prescribed form of conducting the ceremony ~ A method of procedure that is followed without variation ~ performance with gestures, words, and objects, often in a sequestered place.
