Description

The first book on the artist collective known for their raucous multimedia installations. Founded by artist Eli Sudbrack, assume vivid astro focus has been dazzling the art world since 1994 with its exuberant, visually spectacular room-size installations. Created out of recycled and appropriated imagery from a wide range of sources--such as unicorn tapestries, children's stickers, pages from gay porn magazines, album covers, Buddhist thangka paintings, and street graffiti, to name a few--the finished works can feel like a cross between a '70s disco, Brazilian Carnival, and a psychedelic version of Andy Warhol's Factory. This volume, their first, will include many of the elements featured in their installations, which are known for the many "give-aways" the artists provide the visitors: a blow-in poster, postcard and sticker pages, and a pop-up, all designed by avaf.
