What's A Hole?

After a discussion about rituals--the difference between rituals and routines, the types of rituals we partake in, the physical aspects & objects that rituals often involve, the idea that a ritual may involve betterment or reaching another state of being--we translated our ideas into a vocabulary we all share: the marks created through our work as artists.

For this book, each participant punched a path on a sheet of paper that was then transferred to each book--thereby bringing together each of our paths to represent and create a place where we all come together.
