Sefer means book in Hebrew. Books are a repository of knowledge, experience and expression. In this series a symbiotic and symbolic relationship occurs between two elements.

For example in Sefer No. 60, a glass pane separates an empty open book with an organic element lying on it and a stone, resembling a tablet that has been cast in bronze. A paradox is created. While the glass panel separates the two elements it actually brings them together, allowing one to reflect into the other, thus one becomes part of the other – the book becomes part of the stone; the stone part of the books. The reflection appears and disappears as you walk around the sculpture.
