Benjamin Lord Solution of the Cosmological Idea of the Totality of the Composition of the Appearances of a Cosmic Whole
Los Angeles, CA, : B. Lord. 2004
Synopsis: "Solution of the Cosmological Idea of the Totality of the Composition of the Appearances of a Cosmic Whole is a book about the relationship between fiction and reality.
Set in 1968 and 1969, each of the book's three "chapters" appropriates a distinct rhetorical model: public speaking, radio, or newspaper journalism. Each of the three texts embodies, through manipulation, a distinct, skeptical approach to government, the media, photography, and truth. Playing the obviously true against the obviously false, the texts expose the gap between an event and its representation.
The book is illustrated with black and white photographs throughout, which act to unhinge the specificity of the texts into an open metaphoric terrain.
This project was realized during a residency at the Château de La Napoule in Mandelieu, France, in 2004." -- from the artist
