The Last Book
The last book is a project by and curated by Luis Camnitzer, firstly shown at the National Library of Argentina. I was proud that Luis chose my two images as above to be included in the book and always enjoy working on collaborative projects. This book is compiled with written as well as visual statements by artists from around the world in which the authors comment on society past and future, leaving a legacy for future generations. The last book makes a statement in itself about how technology has such an unavoidable impact on our daily lives, the book is printed and is alive 'in the flesh' so to speak, it was quite ironic when the National of Library of Spain offered to show this work but only on 'You tube,' being a complete contradiction to the purpose of the book. The Last book serves as a time-capsual and leaves a document and testament of our time from all sorts of artists from all sorts of places. Hmmmm a very good read!
The Last Book can be viewed at Zentral Bibliothek de Zurich, Switzerland from the 10th of March until the 31st July 2010.
