This book was made with two wood blocks of the same dimension of the unfolded single sheet. I carved the text out of one block and printed it in blue. I then sprinkled the material that was carved from the text of the first block onto the second block. The second block was already inked with orange so the carvings created a mask. The language of every page has a corresponding material equivalent on the other side. The material complements the language and might say more.
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.
