Beckett Bucket

Next up for Andy Parsons and Glenn Holman..... Beckett Bucket, part of 'Happy Days' the first International Beckett Festival in Enniskillen. In a first for Floating World, Parsons and Holman will create an entirely new publication over the course of the event. Details remain sketchy top secret at present, but check back for updates on what is sure to be a Floating World project with intellectual rigour....... and cardboard!

Turn the Page 2012

On 4th& 5th May Floating World took part in the inaugural ‘Turn the Page’ artist’s book event at 'The Forum' in Norwich, UK.  This was a very well organised and professional event in an area of the UK that up to now has not had an artist’s book event. Very well attended over the 2 days, there was a job of work to be done educating some visitors to the exhibition as to what artist’s books are, but the pionering and unique Floating World cardboard sculptural display was a center of attention and drew good crowd. The work was very well received and a new book by Glynis Candler, ‘Tangled Web’ took top honours for most sales.
‘Turn the Page’ will be held again in 2013 and further information and links will be posted on the website in due course.
