David colosi - (Tacit Title:  Stick/Unstick)

 

1996

DESCRIPTION: The pages are black and white Velcro. The words are homonyms of the antonyms “stick/unstick.”

MOTIVATION: I wanted to make the physical passive acts of reading active. The title of the book is not a word but instead the physical activity of removing and attaching the white piece of velcro on the cover. The title is therefore tacit. The reader does what s/he reads and reads what s/he does. The words both command his/her actions and describe them. This is a genuine page-turner.
