Two Impulses

This pamphlet book uses two marks on paper to reflect on two impulses in art and life. The punctuation mark on the left page represents the finality and beauty of a perfect statement, the punctuation mark on the right page breaks up the perfect statement and points to further movement. In parallel to the close of Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable: “I can’t go on, I’ll go on.”

Published in Leerdam, The Netherlands, 2012. Inkjet printed and handbound. A4 size. 4 pages. Edition: 10 (+ 2 AP). The book is priced at €100, plus shipping. Order through email.
