Two different axes of time – the “physical time signature” of the book defined by pages and the timeline of the videos – overlap in the book to create frictions. The still images are plotted on the page-timeline (e.g., a still taken from 02:42 of a video is positioned at the page’s 02:42 point), and in consequence, they appear at an irregular interval. Sometimes the images run over the page edge, but the Asian folding enables a continuous flow.
The dust jacket repeats the Ouroboros-like theme of the exhibition’s graphic materials. On the front, the last work reproduced in the book reappears, followed by a picture from the first work discussed.
