Book Launch: A Sick Logic, Anna Chrystal Stephens and Glen Stokerevent • 02 Nov 2017 7pm–9pm
A Sick Logic is a new 200p book, published as part of the artists’ Platform Residency There Are No Firm Rules at Site Gallery in 2016. We will be celebrating the book launch in Sheffield on Thursday 2 November 2017, 7-9pm
The book came from a quest to seek old knowledge and apply it to current problems. Through an exploration of how to exist as part of an integrated ecosystem, the book presents life-changing information about survival strategies and the experience of skills acquisition, as well as demonstrating how we can be part of a cross-disciplinary collaborative approach to making change.
The publication contains responses to research activities such as plant identification courses, instructional skills sessions and long walks in the form of image sequences and essays. There are a range of contributions from mentors, peers and other explorers who have been part of the project.
Anna was chosen as Axisweb’s Artist of The Month in September. She spoke to them about the book and preceding residency, and you can read the interview here.
