Emily Tracy:

Speaking Volumes

Emily Tracy is a London based artist who has made site specific, socially engaged projects inspired by place, history and communities since 1994. ‘Speaking Volumes’ is a book art installation, consisting of two sculptural stacks of books, with added inserts and images. They are entitled ‘Me Automatic’ and ‘Mondays’ and are inspired by the descriptions of women’s working lives in the recordings.
