Textual Addition

I have been developing this project through the use of text. I removed the pages that corresponded to the Photomontages and once again cut out each picture that appeared on both sides of the page. I then layered them over one another starting with the largest number at the back.

What you get is a wonderfully abstracted textual version of the book whereby the negative space created by the removal of images makes new words like "maomestic" as well as drawing your attention to the void left by the cuts and slices. I am also trying to work out whether this composition adds or detracts from each separate part.
