The concept is about destruction and creation. Books are a symbol of knowledge. I feed on their content and then afterwards, empty them out. I am, once again, an empty container and ready to search for new knowledge and idea.  The empty glasses set in the book are etched with the theme "Kill the Cow, After drink the milk". The language behind the idea of ‘Kill the cow’ is cruel, but destruction is the mother of creation.
