Normally I reserve this blog for Public Collectors news, but it’s a happy day when the group I’m part of, Temporary Services, releases a new book. Please support, and because I fill the mail orders for Half Letter Press, if you mention in your order that you saw this on Public Collectors, I’ll throw in some free stuff!
New from Half Letter Press: Mobile Phenomena by Temporary Services!
Mobile Phenomena is a new collection of over eighty-five photographs and short interviews. It is the result of years of research on common instances of mobile phenomena that impact people and their uses of shared city and rural spaces. In this book you will find bookmobiles, mobile forms of commerce, inventive mobile art projects, mobile structures created for use during protest, and some strange applications of mobility that defy easy description, categorization, or whose function could not be readily discerned. Mobile Phenomena can unhinge the expected roles we take in shared city spaces. Mobile structures can become a new norm when they work. It is our hope that this book can be an inspiration to other citizens, artists, activists, nomads, and anyone who is interested in escaping the constraints of their location, culture, or other factors that make realizing oneʼs desires difficult.
Mobile Phenomena includes contributions by: Courtney Dailey, Alexis Petroff, Joseph Robertson, Jen Hofer, Eric Steen, Christian Ettinger, Platform, Liberate Tate, The Center For Tactical Magic, and Nils Norman.
The book is now available for order. Please help us spread the word, and note some great special deals we have going on!
