Book design for Belgian artist Gauthier Oushoorn. Oushoorn lives and works in Brussels and has a profound interest in the definition of space. Architecture is his recurring frame of reference while his trained craftsmanship acts both as a utility and obstruction. Through sculptural work he explores the elements to create space. The Absence of a Permanent I was commissioned by Europalia Arts Festival for the exhibition at Centre d'innovation et de design, Grand-Hornu, Hornu, Belgium, 2015. Published by Lyre Press, Belgium.
