Text Ball


I created the inflatable paper Text Ball in 2006 as a mascot for the Independent Publishing Resource Center’s annual fundraising event of the same name. I am grateful to students Danielle Sommer and Megan Heeres, who assisted me in creating the ball. The text on the ball is a quote from Ezra Pound: “The Book Should Be a Ball of Light in One’s Hand”. The text ball has also been exhibited at Donna Seager Gallery in San Rafael, CA, the Paper Bienniale in Cheongju, South Korea, and the Morgan Conservatory of Art in Cleveland, Ohio.
