We are very pleased to announce the publication of the second book by ‘The nth Convention’ testing, among other things, just how different a second edition can be from the first.
This book is another manifestation of the work ‘The nth Convention’ have been undertaking since a collaboration in Leipzig in 2005. Conversations held at the time that encompassed science, literature, conspiracy theories, the Cold War, and architecture led to sculpture making, photo taking, film making, psychic drawing experiments… The latter became a metaphor for making work ‘as one mind’, making a truly shared body of work. This time the focus is on unravelling the CMYK printing process. Operating like the distinct dots that merge optically to form a full colour picture, the artists have worked together on this test-card-like volume of screenprint experiments and transcripts to create a truly confusing architecture.
Not every page is accessible without the use of a knife.
The book is covered with thin card, wrapped in a poster-print, and comes in a hard blue cloth covered slipcase with ribbon. The silkscreen CMYK prints are divided into three sections with transparent architect’s mylar paper.
We will hear more from The nth Convention in 2010.
