What is a book? A series of pages, you say. On rectangular paper made from wood pulp or maybe animal skin. Bound on one side with a cover and spine or perhaps unbound, in scroll form. And covered with printed words. Or maybe handwritten words. In the best case, a book is created by artist Vince Koloski: laser-etched acrylic sheets bound in raffia covered wood, with LEDs to emit green and blue lights featuring haiku from the classic era of Japanese haiku on the topic of travel or journeying. Wait, what is a book? Is it art?
