Artist Will Ashford finds meaning in the random arrangement of words vertically and arbitrarily across the pages of discarded books. I guess I call this kind of work “Altered Books”. I like the way Will extracts, like an alchemist, other meanings beyond the original authors words. Several pieces incorporate different editions of “The Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson”. His illustrations are clean and simple and somehow he finds ways to recycle Emersons words to create something new and original.
