About the Book
in ‘a book without a hole’ series Francis Gomila plays with the physicality / non physicality of internet Publish on Demand services exploring the possibilities for sculptural acts through processing a virtual object rendered physical through the act of placing an order.
As suggested by its title 'a book without a hole' is a book without a hole. The complete work is accompanied by a sister book in which the artist bore a 50mm hole through the entire 'book without a hole', rephotographed every page and republished it as 'a book with a hole', thereby generating a vicious cycle from the virtual to the physical and back.
