The process of fossilization, to me, is a process of casting when the original remains of the organism dissolves and leaves an empty space, which is gradually filled with other minerals. By this thinking, I put clay slip in every single space between pages of a book, and then fired it; a fossil of book was formed after burning away its paper and text. Disappearance of the physical body led to the presence of the book in an absent form. The fossil book is a still object, which accumulates numerous times of turning pages but simultaneously free from time. It is not just an evidence of existence but itself is an existence.
