I just read a brief interview of artist Mariko Kusumoto in The Boston Globe Magazine.
Kusumoto creates interactive metal box sculptures that will be featured at an upcoming exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum – Unfolding Stories.
When asked for the inspiration behind her work, Kusumoto replied:
I feel comfortable creating space. It gives me a sense of security.
Those words could just have easily come from my lips – that’s one of the reasons why I make blank books. I love the idea of creating spaces where people can feel safe enough to express themselves.
For those of you who also make books – why do you do it?
