Book Art: Containment Collapse as the Clam

Book Art: Containment Collapse as the Clam

The complimentary paper mache sculpture to the Expansion Expression Paper Mache Scorpion. Containment Collapse’s Primordial Essence is the Clam so the shape of the sculpture is my interpretation of the Clam in a closed state. Doing it opened seemed too ambitious at this point. So it was going to be closed, stationary, and plain.

Containment Collapse Afterword: Expectations Versus Reality

Containment Collapse Afterword: Expectations Versus Reality

This afterword is about the expectations I had when writing Containment Collapse, the reality that came to be, and what lies ahead.
