Ab Ovo Binder
I was inspired by my children's custody battle for “Ab Ovo” or "From the Egg" and chose to use the children’s story as the goal and framework for the piece.
For Ab Ovo, Hull began by soliciting 19 artists to take the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2TM, a personality test used by the court system to identify and evaluate psychological disorders. Each test, customized to the settings used in child custody cases, produced a personality profile, which Hull then handed over (anonymously) to 19 writers, asking them to write a children's story based on the character that emerged from the profile. These stories were then given to 19 different artists, who were asked to produce illustrations. The results are published in the Ab Ovo book.
