Genesis was the first artist book I made while studying at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
Inspired by the book-works of Anselm Kieffer, and the passage in Genesis stating that “man is made in the image of God”, it occurred to me that “Man” was a copy of God, so that images/art depicting Man was thus a copy-of-a-copy.
Beginning with a print of a generic figure from the Poser 3D software, and by making a copy of the preceding copy, the image denigrates into art.
