Art and Text: a preliminary dig

I finally received my first Art and Text book and have been pouring through it. It is called Art and Text and is published by Black Dog Publishing. It is the best introduction to the subject I have seen so far.

Here are some of my favourites:

(Claire’s own fingers on page)

Mixed media installation including 1,724 neon words
