‘We indeed!’ cried the Mouse, who was trembling down to the end of his tail, ‘As if I would talk on such a subject! Our family always hated cats: nasty, low, vulgar things! Don’t let me hear the name again!’

A piece for a collaborative art project where an artist is assigned a paragraph from Alice in wonderland and then that paragraph is replaced with an image based on that paragraph.

Basically, we're taking the line 'what is the use of a book without pictures' (first statement by Alice in the book) and we're pushing it to the extreme. Every single paragraph of the entire book is being turned into a piece of artwork. In the end the project will be a collection of about 500-1000 pages of art created by hundreds of artists in every medium imaginable... telling the entire story without the use of any words.
