Photocopied Dictionary / Daniel Eatock / Assisted by Daminata and Lilli

Every page of an English dictionary was photocopied onto an A4 sheet to produce a stack of more than 1,500 pages. The project refers to the way books are photocopied for reference. The dictionary is the archetypal reference book. Photocopying resulted in a handmade duplicate, that has more value than the original through the time and expense invested in making it. The height of the stack makes the volume of information contained in a dictionary, normally disguised by the thin weight of the paper, more tangible and gives it physically and conceptually more weight.
