ARTISTS’ BOOK ANTHOLOGY
incl. calligraphy, photography, photomontages & visual essays by
"Artists' books are works of art that utilize the form of the book. They are often published in small editions, though artists’ books are sometimes produced as one-of-a-kind objects. They have employed a wide range of forms, including scrolls, fold-outs, concertinas or loose items contained in a box.
Artists' books are made for a variety of reasons. They are often created to make art that is interactive, portable, movable and easily shared. Many artists' books challenge the conventional book format and become sculptural objects. In recent decades the artists' book form has been developed, and artists have produced a series of works which systematically deconstructed the form of the book, by way of the artists’ special edition books including VHSs, CDs, DVDs or other media.”

SCRATCH DESIGN COLLECTION
incl. photography, photomontages & graphic design by ILPPO POHJOLA
"Scratch video was a British video art movement that emerged in the early to mid-1980s. It was characterised by the use of found footage, fast cutting and multi-layered rhythms. It is significant in that, as a form of outsider art, it challenged many of the establishment assumptions of broadcast television – as well of those of gallery-bound video art.
Much of the work was politically radical, often containing images of a sexual or violent nature, and using images appropriated from mainstream media, including corporate advertising; using strategies inspired by the Situationist concept of detournement and William S. Burroughs’ theories of Electronic Revolution."
old school Slide shows1984-86
OLD SCHOOL SLIDE SHOWS
incl. photography & sequencing by
"A slide show is a presentation of a series of still images on a projection screen or electronic display device, typically in a prearranged sequence. The changes may be automatic at regular or irregular intervals or they may be manually controlled by a presenter.
Slide shows originally consisted of a series of individual photographic slides projected onto a screen with a carousel slide projector. An image on 35 mm film mounted in a 2x2 inch (5x5 cm) metal, card or plastic frame is by far the most common photographic slide format.
A slide show may be a presentation of images purely for their own visual interest or artistic value, sometimes unaccompanied by description or text, or it may be used to clarify or reinforce information, ideas, comments, solutions or suggestions which are presented verbally or musically."
