CLRC members recycle in the name of art.
Deanna Perez, a Hamilton College student from Long Island, is using discarded books from the college library to create two large sculptures this summer.
In the first, Deanna is piecing together the hard covers removed from the books, showing the spine, glue, and thread used in the binding. “It tells the story of a book that you don’t get from reading the pages,” she said.
In the second piece, Deanna is cutting out lines of text and weaving them together into long ropes. She will suspend these ropes to “create a forest of words that you can walk through.”
