Title and statement of responsibility from box Signed by the artist Accompanied by wooden support stand (2 cm x 10 cm x 2 cm) "This is a moveable book without words. It is a free association dreamlike movie that begins with a vision of the man in the moon. When the wooden dowels are turned a scroll of very thin paper within the box reveals backlit drawings with a silent cinematic feel. Holes punched in the black cover paper illuminate like stars in the night sky framing the 'movie'"--Description from 23 Sandy Gallery website, viewed May 17, 2019 Scrolling box book. Handscroll. Two wooden dowels at the bottom of the piece turn the illustrated scoll either to the left or right. Dowels also fit into the wooden base so the upper piece can sit upright.
