Folded Dictionary

A 20 volume Oxford English Dictionary folded in on itself.

Sam Winston is a story-teller, sculptor and print maker, who generates alternative meanings from the given fundamental blocks of communication, such as traditional fairy tales and language definition. He operates on verbal sequences through an ever inventive series of actions to take meaning in a different, visual and formal direction. In Full Folded Dictionary, he has transformed the twenty volumes of the OED by folding every page differently – making more than 80,000 folds.
