This book followed from the wish to make color surfaces that would be based purely on color numbers instead of aesthetic choices, and that could meanwhile still be read as aesthetic objects and physical substances. It ended up as a highly process-based book reflecting on absence.
Signs here have become independent, no longer referring to things. Baudrillard’s thoughts on simulacra and simulations were an influence. The color surfaces are simulacra of simulacra. I tried to locate God and searched an online phonebook for the numbers of names (“Where”, “Is”, and “God”) connected to my question. The numbers were used in Photoshop’s digital palettes to create color fields and gradients. The same numbers were used to compose short texts on each spread.
The book is included in the collections of the Library of the Printed Web and the Tate Library and Archive.
