I have experimented with pages from this book and others similar and have found that oil removes the ink from the pages. Therefore, I’m marinating this book in oil to see what happens.

This is a development of the marinating pages experiment, where I have decided to explore this idea of making pages translucent even further by deciding to marinate a book.


  • Present this book in a gallery space on a plinth and encourage the audience to interact with it, to see their reaction
  • Shine lights through the pages to see how the transparency of the pages have been altered by the oil
