"Futurism's Bastard Son" documents several decades of eccentric work from somewhat traditional objects to conceptual plans and live art. It includes 3-days buried alive, a lengthwise Mississippi River swim as performance and environmental statement, 40-day Death Valley Desert Fast and performances for cows and other under-served audiences.
Published by Mark Pezinger Verlag – Vienna and released in Kassel, Germany parallel to Documenta, August, 2012. The US release is at the Museum Of Modern Art, P.S. 1, during the  “New York Art Book Fair” - September 27-30.

The publisher and I chose quality over quantity, with a good paper, Munken Lynx, and stitched thread binding. (Pages: 115 grams Cover: 300 grams) It’s an artist’s life as art in 128 letter size pages with 164 black and white images and French Flap Covers. The text is in English from multiple sources including my own words. Design: Astrid Seme.

A collectors Edition of 50 copies includes a signed and numbered hand stamped folder with an artist altered world map showing the Mississippi River swim.

The process:
The publisher and designer contacted me after a performance in Vienna. I gave them access to my files. They did additional research and produced the volume. They used my three major works from “The Search DVD”, the Mississippi River swim, Death Valley desert fast and Three-day live burial, as pillars to build the book around, but it includes so much more from early works to the present.
