Book that was part of exhibition for Olaf Nicolai : Considering a multiplicity of appearances in light of a particular relevance. Or: can art be concrete?, at Carolina Nitsch, New York, March 28 - May 10, 2008.

Conceived by the artist as a single work, the project consists of 16 color prints on custom painted walls and 400 color books displayed on tables across the room. Prints and books were done as high-quality Iris prints with the artist randomly feeding different colors one at a time into an offset printing machine. The mechanical movements of the printing make the resulting color mix on each sheet a unique, never to be repeated print. This rarely used process - unlike most commercial printing - allows pure color printing without any dot screens. - from NY Art Beat
