Topology of Scrapbooking
Browsing Through a Space in Constant Transformation
The essay sheds light on the practice of scrapbooking promoting a spatial reflection. Topology is used as a tool for exploration and stimulates an investigation in terms of movement and morphological deformations. The topological references, along with three examples of artist scrapbooking, enable tangent reflections that depict a multifaceted contemporary scrapscape with profound design, cultural, and media value. Scrapbooking emerges as a metamorphic threshold practice between the private and the public, capable of empowering the ephemeral and questioning ever-moving constructions such as culture and identity, both visually and materially.
