i used to be a bookseller

people still remember me as such

my problem, though..

is that my unconsciousness also remembers me as a bookseller

i cannot stop dreaming about having my own bookshop

so i decided to embark upon this "burning all my bookshelves" project

every single artifact in this collection begins with a piece of wood

from an old, used bookshelf

first i cut the shelves into small squares, approximately 20 x 20 cm

then i asked myself how old i was at the time

and the result was 49 pieces

thus, this project is called 49 steps

in the end, i hope to reach

a new agreement with reality

and finally free myself from my bookseller's past

we shall see how it works
