For this manuscript I have chosen the essence of Vedute’s principles. My own personal vision of space, embodied in a manuscript handcrafted with my favourite material.
‘Paper appears to be flat, but it isn’t. It consists of the pulp of various materials with a binding agent. It occupies space, moves under the influence of moisture and heat, shrinks and expands.
It feels downy or soft, cold or hard. The choice and treatment of the paper determined the character of the end result. As abasis for a statement, it is itself the beginning of the message. Paper is present; paperis space; paper speaks’.
