Here & Now

Getting Nowhere

Artist Book | Print, Production

This artist book is a typographic tribute to musician John Cage, embodying an experience similar to Cage's music. Based on our shared beliefs on non-dualism and achieving "at-oneness" by experiencing the present moment, Here and Now attempts to remove human constructs out of normal situations.

Consisting of John Cage's Lecture on Nothing & Lecture on Something, Cage's words are constantly interwined but seperate, allowing the reader to create their own journey or, at least, be aware of their choices. Annotated with gold foiled thoughts on philosophy, time, and experience from Henry David Thoreau, the interplay between the content creates many new possibilies that will take you out of, or into, the here and now.
