Rejects #seven


When making her xerox books Butler is left with stacks of papers she ran through the machine incorrectly or were rejected trial images. She takes these pages and runs them through the machine again, sometimes multiple times, building up a rich layers of images. She then sorts through the pages finding ways in which different images and layers of images on each page can form relationships and rhythms with the images on other pages. Once a good set is developed she prints a unique color laser front & back cover and staples them into a book.

each book is app. 40 to 46 pages.
