Artist’s Book

“You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back?” (W. Clement Stone, an American businessman) – Artist’s Book

In this project I have tried to express my political and social views regarding the government-citizen relation and the government’s perception of the working class. The object I have chosen as representative of myself is the chess pawn. The choice stems on the one hand from my passion for this game and on the other hand from the symbolism of this piece which is echoed in my personality. A front-line soldier who does not withdraw when faced with challenges, capable of loyalty and sacrifice. A piece which may be paramount in winning a battle.

Next, I included a series of references to reality that this piece may have, in my attempt to highlight the similarities to certain social strata and offer it a human value. Everything packed in the form of an artist’s book.
