self-help book spines, mull, thread
Covers of self-help books are meticulously removed from their boards and sewn together in a Fret pattern creating a patchwork quilt. Ironically, it is not the books themselves, (Kokin has often remarked that the used ones she finds appear for the most part to be unread) that offers solace and transformation. It is the process of artmaking that spins dread and dissatisfaction into something whole and visually satisfying.
