4. Plastic

Edition of 20 copies
6″ x 8″ closed
Providence, RI, 1986

This non-biodegradable book comes in a plastic bag. The copy-written text unfolds in sequence as the layers of Styrofoam are opened. It is something you might have had for lunch, something street people might come across in their travels or something that might wash up on the shore. You can throw it away but it never entirely disappears.

Styrofoam forms, plastic utensils, presstype.
