Description

The major component of the work is a old, poorly preserved book; it is torn on the right-hand side. Along the incised edges -- as well in some parts unaffected by the tearing -- emerged some furry, organic, fiber-like structures, of which are likely to be a dematerialized form of the book-page. On one of the parted edge, some spikes made of wood (resembling toothpicks) also protrude from it, disturbing the soft, gentle harmony brought by the organic "fiber" compound. (Jerry Wu'23).
