The Book of Knowledge
Evelyn • Age 16
This art piece was all about repurposing materials to bring The Book of Knowledge to life. The Book of Knowledge is a children’s encyclopaedia that includes fantasy stories and information about our natural world. I used a recycled book as my base which I carved into to make room for two mini worlds. The right side is a library including a wooden artist’s easel and overflowing bookcase, with a ladder to reach all the knowledge you need. While the left side is a fantasy world where nature is much larger than us, with giant butterflies flying around a wire figure above ground and a paper mache shipwreck on top of a hot glue waterfall under ground. These worlds join together the natural and fantasy worlds within The Book of Knowledge.
