Mixed-media artwork War & Peace by Emma Lehto

War & Peace

What would happen if you shot a book? Would the bullet go right through? Or would it stop. In creative abuse series, I have been interested in breaking down the book form, what kind of "experiments" could I do to a book to remove the familiarity of it. Thats what this series is about for me. 
Most of the results have been surprising.
