Art of the Dinner Party  

The article, The Art of the Dinner Party, written by Gabrielle Hamilton for the New York Times Magazine October 2017 issue has been transformed into a candle-wax bound book that doubles as a set of placemats. Page by page, the type setting mimics the evolution of a table setting throughout a dinner party—things or words get increasingly displaced. The video above showing the ultimate destruction and utilization of the book was filmed and edited by me.
