The Sky Over
The question, how to make one book out of one painting, found its answer in the idea of the flipbook. The image of the painting of the sky is cut up in horizontal sections and placed on different pages, in order to create a sense of movement as you turn the pages; a movement similar to what take place when you actually are looking at the sky; at first sight only a strip of the horizon is seen in front of your eyes, and as you move your head upwards, the sky gradually expands, and after a while seems to vanish. The flipbook-like-placement of the horizontal sections on each page corresponds to looking at the sky as a movement looking upwards, as if reading from the bottom of the page and up.
