consists of a stack of 365 hand numbered sheets, a notice/label will invite
people to take one. As these are dispersed a conceptual and yet physically
actual geography will be created in the space between the pages. When
one stack runs out, a new set will replace it. One of these will be in
an exhibition in Bradford, England at the same time. These spaces will
shift as pages move around, even if thrown away.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
John McDowall is a printmaker based in Bradford, West Yorkshire, whose
work is produced mainly in book form, reflecting the influence of film
and aspects of contemporary writing and exploring some of their shared
characteristics with visual books, encompassing the potential for contribution
and participation by the viewer/reader. Books where subject and medium
are combined, employing the format as carrier of text/image and using
the sequential structure as a primary conceptual mechanism, where time
is an essential productive element in the visualising of the absent.
Initiator and co-organiser of the annual Contemporary Artists'Book Fair,
held in Halifax, England since 1998.
