Books are receptacles of stories. They’re like sculptures of information – words and stories made into tangible objects. Books are also metaphors for people’s identities and memories. The pieces revolve around the idea of the breakdown of these identities and the slow dissolution of memories. Specific stories and personalities dissolve and run together. Singular identities lose cohesion until they become anonymous. The books try to depict that moment before all identity and story dissolves. In that moment, the object is in flux and becomes something new and different.

Rommel was born in tropical Philippines, which is an odd melting pot of Southeast Asian, Hispanic and American influences. He loves smelling books and drawing people when they're not looking. http://rommeljoson.com View all posts by rommelj
