Book du jour - Swarms

A little item that surfaced during my reorganisation of the work -
The book is about 10cm square. I sprayed the page with clear water, then carefully touched the separate drops with a brush laden with ink, working quickly to get as many drops as possible before they dried -
 Originally this was an offshoot of my "flocks of the skybirds" piece, but seeing it in the context of the "memory" project ... and especially next to the "memory balls" ... it calls up entirely different thoughts ...
A "dispersal" on each facing page ... right lobe, left lobe ... the different things that go on in the lobes ... some text (a quote? a word or two?) along the bottom ...
