BOOKS — An All-Inclusive Presence
Special edition of only two, large format (16 5/8 x 15 1/4 x 1 7/8"), hand-bound books, each containing an introductory text, technical notes, and a set of 65 prints. These prints originate in Sumi ink paintings made on glass that are subsequently digitized in a flatbed scanner. Embedded on the cover of each one of the books is one of the original paintings on glass with the ink emulsion on the back side protected with a coat of gold spray paint. (US $1,500.00)
At the end of 2016 we carried-out a successful financial campaign to fund the development of a video-concert version of this book. Ithaca-based composer, Peter Dodge, and Trumansburg video artist, Bryan Root, are presently working in this project that we hope will have its first performance sometime this year.
