NEW ENSIXTEEN - 9/11/11: One into three

Images from the thing I have done most  recently here. Click to enlarge them, as ever.

The new book is actually three books - in a set entitled 'The Physics of Violence'

Part one is called 'Cause', Part Two '&' and Part Three 'Effect'.

This is created as part of my signing up to an interesting project called 'An Inventory of Al-Mutanabbi Street' - in memory of a terrorist attack on an ancient street devoted to the trade and appreciation of books in Baghdad, in 2007.

I completed primary work on the edition on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York - which have infiltrated previous books in the 'bio auto graphic' series since 2004.

The new editions consider what exactly drives members of our society to take such irrevocably damaging actions against others.

Who are they, why do they do it, and what are the repercussions for us all?

They will be first exhibited at the 3rd London Art Book Fair - beginning with a Preview night this very evening at The Whitechapel Gallery.


The Special Collection at Winchester School of Art acquired this new piece during the 2nd day of the event, and old friend of Ensixteen Editions Maria White (Chief Cataloguer for Tate Britain) did the same on the final 3rd day..
