Project Statement

by J.Drucker

A conceptual work, produced through a series of deliberate steps, this is a work that has all the conspicuous features of the conceptual multiples of the late 1970s. Its ideas, execution, and moves are all within that framework, and though it is not a particularly outstanding or original piece, it is an exemplary work of this type of book -- as its low production values bear out.
