The Kitchen Sink. Pentimento - Satin, Claire Jeanine - 2006. [1277182]
Dania FL, 2006. Unique artist's book, on acetate sheets, signed by the artist on the affixed title / colophon, hand-lettered in black ink. Page size: 8.5 x 5.5 inches; 12pp. Bound by the artist: hand sewn with clear nylon thread affixing cover - a lemon yellow translucent rubber sink drain mat as the covers; tiny metal blocks with crystal stoppers hold the nylon threads (which are much longer than the book) in place. Each block is lettered, spelling out "People Either Get The Point Or They Don't." Housed in acrylic slipcase with paper label printed in black at closed end of slipcase. The pages of the "book" have tiny letters in red, green, blue, orange, silver and gold affixed in a seemingly random pattern. However, when the book is viewed open, the letters appear in the spiral in which water drains (Coriolis force). The rubber sink mat - which is perforated to let the water drain while catching that which should not go down the drain - has done its job here, trapping letters and words, specific and at random.
