3 tunnel books serie materialize an ancestral fear "something scary is watching us…."
Each tunnel book, once opened out, becomes a box containing its own universe and the beats hiding within.
Plans are individually made, therefor the opening which the reader/spectator looks from narrows to guide him at the very heart of the book, where the beast is crouching.
Under the sea
The tunnel book is made of 6 consecutive plans bound by side bands concertinaed. Once opened out, the tunnel book puts a universe in perspective in a theatrical way.
The making of tunnel books was made in association with artist ELSA MORA (engraver illustrator)(http://elsamoracrea.blogspot.fr) using engraved lino which is then digitally colorized.
