A Seattle artist announced today he has completed a project he has been working on for seven years:
In February 2002, JEMA’s Director, Sean Miller, purchased George W. Bush’s book A Charge To Keep: My Journey to the White House. He drew a grid on the book, cut “chad-like” rectangles into the cover, removed rectangular portions, recorded the printed words, and slowly ate the paper portions. For the last seven years he has been eating the book and documenting its slow disappearance. Today he is pleased to announce he is done eating and the small remainder and binding will be entered into the JEMA Library.
