A publication instigated in response to perceived inadequacies in traditional artist monography conventions. A response to the practice of Melbourne based artist collective Open Spatial Workshop (Terri Bird, Bianca Hester, Scott Mitchell), this publication began as a manipulation of the monograph form.
