A Visual Interpretation of Georges Batailles' The Story of the Eye

Hand-bound, single-print book containing the full text of Georges Bataille's infamous Story of the Eye. Each page of text is paired with a cropped stolen image, pulling from a curated collection of high-end dog food, French soap, sploshing, gaping, wood carving, fertilizer, mummification, forniphilia, mukbang, and medical eye defects. A personal 'mining' of the guts of the internet to show the endless possible inspirations that could accompany a visual remix of Story of the Eye based on the aesthetic of current times.
