Hunting the Burn


Poet Carolyn Hull is not the first to explore the
similarities between the moment of firing a gun at
a live target and the moment of orgasm, but her
poem Hunting the Burn moves beyond this simple comparison to explore a variety of experience.

This is a two-sided leporello with removable spines allowing it to function both as a codex and as an accordion. One side is an inkjet print of a painting by Alicia Bailey, the other side has the poem. The box is wax covered paper-mache with a hemp-wrapped bullet on the lid, smooth black stones and feathers on the inside.
