Into the Light
An Artist book in a box, by Corina Duyn.
My name is Corina Duyn. I am an author and artist.
Creativity has been hugely important during the past 17 years to help me understand my life lived with chronic illness (M.E./CFS). Writing, drawing, or the making sculptures allows me to see where the boundaries lay, but also to explore the possibilities beyond.
Into the Light consists of approximately 80 loose A5 sheets, gathered in a custom-made wooden box. Each sheet shares an art or nature image, and a quote (by another author) on one side. A short reflection on life with chronic illness on the reverse: about fear, hope, acceptance, personal challenges and society’s opinions, living in the now, to moments of gratitude.
The reader becomes part of the project by deciding the sequence of the pages,taking one out, hanging them up like prayer flags, or posting them off to friends or family.
I am close to finishing the writing and the boxes have been designed by Designed4U, and Muckross Bookbindery.
Check out my project on Fundit.ie. The funds raised will go towards the printing of the pages and production of the editions.
