Calligraffiti — photomontage, 23K gold leaf, Chinese stick ink and photocopying. Cover: collage, paste paper. The graffiti is an excerpt from a Rudolf Koch quote: "The making of letters in every form is for me the purest and the greatest pleasure, and at many stages of my life it was to me what a song is to the singer, a picture to the painter, a shout to the elated or a sigh to the oppressed. It was and is for me the most happy and perfect expression of my life." Special thanks to my friend, Michelle Bosomworth, for modeling.
