Artist Erin Thurlow often starts with a found object. In this case, an issue of National Geographic magazine. Through a process of cutting and erasure with a series of ready-made geometric designs, he reveals the latent forms and hidden agendas in supposedly neutral content. What is left visible is simultaneously important and extraneous. This beautiful artist book reveals how books in general are both objects and experiences. The first 40 copies sold will be signed by the artist.
A work both unlike anything else and yet very like one particular issue of National Geographic magazine, this book is difficult to describe, but speaks for itself.
