Artist's / designer's statements

Wooden box which opens like a book. Smaller paper booklets and found objects are stuck and placed within wooden box book.

This book is based on an explorer who is in search of a creature which he is not sure actually exists. This book is the detailed account of his travels to find this unknown creature. The book does not represent the creature directly, exactly or completely. This exploration deals with the idea that there are man-eating monsters in unexplored territories according to previous map-makers and explorers.

The viewer is left to question why the creature is being chased by the explorer, who the explorer is, if the explorer finds the creature and what would happen should the creature be found.
