The Only Book

$ 75.00

organized by  Sara  Reisman. On view January 20, 2006 - April 1, 2006.

The Only Book brings together a range of artworks that allude to the coincidence of an increasingly technology-based media environment with a new form of minimalism. Referencing a recent media campaign which suggested that a collection of books can be replaced by a single electronic device, The Only Book questions the authoritative qualities appointed to a single book, publication, periodical, or technological interface. Some of the ideas behind The Only Book revolve around how technology produces minimalism in terms of aesthetics and content; the way that information overload can lead to superficial knowledge; and how the notion of the obsolescence of books as an information technology might contribute to new ideas about intelligence.
