These 7 images I created as part of my thesis project at Massart. I adapted a story from Plato, the Allegory of the Cave, using birds instead of humans in a more modern setting. All these images I transferred into a hand bound book, where I also showed my sketches and process work. The book itself was bound in dark cloth, sewn together with japanese stab binding using copper-toned thread, the pages made of off-white printmaking paper, and the cover I embellished with twisted copper wires mimicking the bars of the birdcage.
