The artist is blindfolded. He throws a book into the air and rushes forward not knowing where the book will fall. The action is repeated in three different locations in Johannesburg with three different books respectively:
The Iching – in a public park in front of a power station Republic Road, towards Randburg
The Koran – atop the Rennie building in Braamfontein overlooking the city
& the Bible – in front of the oncoming traffic on Jeppe street near Newtown.
The final work is exhibited as a installation with the three objects (books) placed directly on the floor underneath each corresponding photograph (printed out 210 x 250mm).
