Description

Four artists are featured in this rare book. They work in divergent media and are not associated with one particular art movement. Because they lack a cohesive foundation what brings these artists together is, in fact unusually usual. All four artists are working in mediums in which they are not trained and are operating in a mode of activity that is through their own devising. Born in the midst of McLuhan’s Understanding Media, it is no accident that this kind of bookwork was being produced. Text, image, critical writing and narrative story collide in a Fluxus/Dadaist absurdity and lust for life.
