Do Not Judge

Recycled Book and text


This work is inviting the viewer to look beyond their first impression and perhaps look more closely to see a different situation. I want the viewer to consider the idea of childhood and whether this is particular to a society, a time or place.

The title of this work is from the phrase “Do not judge a book by it’s cover” and seems appropriate for this work and my experience on placement.

I have used a popular and typical book published in 1964 to challenge the out of date veneer of childhood when viewed today.  I have chosen specific text within the work from the book itself together with extracts from a recycled Psychology book.
