Best Answer

Tom Phillips uses pages of books to go over, and he selects certain sentences he likes and picks them out. inspired by William Burroughs's "cut-up" writing technique, Tom Phillips bought a Victorian novel for three pence-W. H. Mallock's 1892 novel, A Human Document. He treated the pages with gouache and ink, trapping the words that interested him while scoring out unwanted words or painting over them. The result was A Humument a Humument is a mix of human and document
