Creator:Cha, Theresa Hak Kyung
Description:"Earth" was first created as an artist book by Cha in 1973. This version is the text from the first version of "Earth" 1973 with additional text. The pages are photocopies. The text is in French and English.
Cha's concern is "grammatical structure of language syntax," "how words and meanings are constructed in language system, by function and usage," how transformation is brought about through manipulation, changing syntax, isolation, removing from context, repetition and reduction to minimal units." The artist book is a medium by which she can explore and uncover these concerns. By "using written text and images...through actual material or structure of the book i.e. page sequence, silences, pauses, time, space." (Statement of Proposed Study, Holland).
