Mark Cockram

Mark is currently working on a number of projects including taking the book towards fine art, print techniques, ways in which the book can be viewed within the contexts of the exhibition and the public/private collection, the artist book and creating three dimensional, extended book sculptures and formats. It is hoped that this research will lead to a more contemporary way of working with the book, viewing the book: its structure, manipulation and use.
