Marcel Duchamp and The Architecture of Desire
I just received this – having heard Penelope speak about some of this work I can’t wait to get into it. It also has a few images of mine at the back, one of the body project drawings and one each from Instruments Five and Six.
Drawing, The Motive Force of Architecture
There is a new edition of Peter Cook’s excellent book on drawing, “Drawing, The Motive Force of Architecture”. It also includes an additional section with, for instance, a wonderful new Mark West drawing, Smout Allen’s composite drawing/model for the Egyptian Museum, a couple of Perry Kulper’s finest and some of Marjan Colletti’s Metalika drawings. And another of my drawing instruments in action. Well worth a look!
Pamphlet Architecture 34
The cover, taken with a flash.
My copy of Pamphlet Architecture 34 arrived today – very good to see it. The parts we were worried about, such as the balance between the main text and the secondary commentaries has come out well. The colour pages really help bring out the work. Big thanks To Meredith Baber from Princeton Architectural Press who was super-helpful and to Mark Stanley for his design work in setting out the book.
The image is of course the digital file for the cover – I will photograph the real thing when some daylight arrives.
If you want a copy there are a bunch of links a couple of posts back.
As it has been advertised on the Princeton Architectural Press website (see here), here is the cover of Pamphlet 34. The edition covers a range of work by Perry Kulper and myself including some new collaborative work that plays out some of the ideas we have been working with individually. It is also available on Amazon, see a few posts back for links.
Working with Perry worked out well and we are in hatching a few new plots at the moment.
We heard today that Pamphlet 34 has gone to press, so it should be out in a couple of months.
Perry Kulper and I have been exchanging ideas and pieces of work for the past few years and in Pamphlet 34 have made some collaborative pieces of work. Given that we are in different time zones – Perry in Ann Arbor Michigan USA and I am in Brighton, East Sussex in the UK – the nature of the collaboration requires quite particular modes of operation. But it has been a blast working with Perry and a delight to get his fresh views on things through the process.
If you would like to pre-order a copy you can find them on Amazon HERE in the UK and HERE in the US.
This dropped though my letterbox this morning. It has a range of material themed around the issues of error including twelve pages, mostly of pictures, of some of my instruments in action.
