Time Trap.

Brooklyn: Assembling Press, 1980.

Quarto, 48 pages with a thread that traverses the center of the booklet. With a 2 page reprint taken from A critical Assembling (1979). All together in grey envelope with pasted on title label.

- First edition. “Time Trap ….. is composed of twelve 8 1/2" by 12" sheets folded and stapled in booklet form. A loop of thread connects the midpoint of each page. The work explores various dimensions of the book form through four series of diagrams accompanied by texts and instructions. These graphic-textual progressions migrate over the outer margin of adjacent pages, through the gutter on the inside of a folded sheet, through the gutter on the outside of a folded sheet, or across the gutter from one page to the next. Three of the graphic progressions are v-forms which narrow and elongate as they migrate. The fourth a string of numbers 1-12. The texts associated with each progression express attitudes of waiting, disorientation and entrapment. The four progressions are all there at once, but never meet: only one progression can be pursued by the interactive reader at a time, hence the title. The accompanying introduction, "Open Structure for a Philosophical Experiment" originally appeared in An Eighth (Critical) Assembling.” See: http://www.nameman.org/.

- First edition. One of 50 numbered and signed copies with two original pasted in images.

'Through Katrien de Blauwer's collages and their short circuit effect in our ways of seeing, the book intends to explore and deepen the concept of void and its visibility, proposing a work that's situated at the border of different artistic disciplines, from photography to cinema to performance and to painting. Photographer without a camera, KDB collects and re-uses pictures and supports from old magazines and papers, engaging them in a vision that occurs directly in the hand, becoming thereby more physical and tactile.'
