Edition of 400, inscribed by the artist (?). Commercially color offset printed book, perfect bound with dust jacket that is also folded poster, with blind embossed title. This book presents images of Kent's work with accompanying essays by Maria Jonnson and Jannie Regnerus. It is the product of a larger installation work that was inspired by a biking trip in Norway, during which Kent designed patterns based on sound coordinates that he recorded during his trip. The book was published in conjunction with a 2008 exhibition mounted at the Ellen de Bruijune Gallery.
“The input is my own life. During my travelling I constantly keep track of what the coordinates of my location are. When I’m back in my studio, I begin with a figurative image, which I manipulate on the computer. I use the numbers of the coordinates to change the sine waves of the image. It’s an asymmetrical system and my patterns have flaws. They have the accidental in them and they don’t quite match up.” --Artist's statement: http://www.edbprojects.nl/?mark-kent-george-korsmit-evi-vingerling-uta-eisenreich-20-06-09-11-07-09,275
