SEETHE, 2007

Hand-made book, burnt
38 x 80 x 13 cm

In 'Seethe' and 'Fume', Kate literally and metaphorically plays with fire; a hole burnt into the pages of a hand-made book resembles an inverted flower. The unexpected beauty and fragility of the incinerated pages, however, is subverted by the heresy of the action.
