Bound By The Ties – Side Seen Moments By Know Hope and Colin Bleus
Words – Know Hope
he book is composed of a collection of drawings, writings, photographs and other side-seen moments, some from the recent past, and some from very close to the present. I sewed, folded and mended, retrieved and recited; tried to understand how we got to where we are now (sunken/sunken/sunken)
This is a book that contains a narrative that speaks of being born into debt, being overwhelmed in a heartbroken world and finding and recognizing eachother in these complexities. It attempts to document our rituals-how and why they were created. It is a folk tale of some sort, collective memories compiled like a time-capsule, or fireworks in a jar.
The book is independently published in an edition of 1000 and is comprised of 160 full-color pages.
