The neatness in which each line is blocked out by the ink hints at Zuniga’s former training as a designer. His attention to detail alters the recycled pages [6]unrecognizably, and the books he uses are transformed from ho hum┬ácommunication┬átools into elaborate works of art. The series has already been exhibited in galleries internationally.
