Sandpaper from Stairs: Indigenous Asperity (Artist's Book Series XV)

48027-IMG_6146Asperity is a dangerous book - especially to the other books in the collection. Instead of paper, the book is printed on actual sandpaper. And a rather coarse sandpaper at that.

The work itself contrasts facts and figures which contrast Western ideas and indigenous knowledge. The item was sold in a plastic wrapper to keep it and others safe.
