READING ROOM: Ayami Awazuhara, A Heart of a Stone, (Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite, 2014).
From Bom Dia:
Do we think that a stone is a cold and dead material or rather warm and vital? A Heart of a Stone is published as part of the installation by artist Ayami Awazuhara. The work consists of several elements arranged in various display structures. The book A Heart of a Stone is part anecdote, part fiction and part sculpture. It was developed in a collaboration with Santiago da Silva.

Mariana Castillo Deball, Ixiptla (Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite, 2014)
From Bom Dia:
Originally a Nahua word, ixiptla has been understood as image, delegate, character, and representative. Ixiptla could be a container, but also could be the actualization of power infused into an object or person. In Nahua culture, it took the form of a statue, a vision, or a victim who turned into a god destined to be sacrificed. Without having to visually appear the same, multiple ixiptlas of the same god could exist simultaneously. The distinction between essence and material, and between original and copy vanishes.
This edition of Ixiptla is focused on the trajectory of objects collected and produced by archeologists - plaster molds, facsimiles, drawings, photographs, and scale models -, in an attempt to capture and replicate material evidences left by time; these objects emerge from a specific moment in time, producing a doppelgänger of the original milieu, which then takes its own course.

FEATURED ARTIST: Karyn Olivier, Inbound: Houston. Houston, Texas, October 26-November 22, 2009. Courtesy the artist.
With the assistance of a Creative Capital Foundation grant I converted 13 billboard advertisements on Houston’s freeways to photographic representations of the landscape that exists directly behind the billboard structures. In addition, I collaborated with two composers who created a musical score to accompany the billboards—this soundtrack was available on Houston’s NPR station. I premiered two videos, which I made to accompany a live performance of these compositions on November 17, 2009 at Moores Opera House at the University of Houston.

48 pages, 21 cm x 29.6 cm, 34 color illustrations, 5 b/w illustrations softcover, thread stitching.
From Camera Austria:
The publication at hand joins the discourse on forms of visual reduction within current photographic projects. Here a pictorial language begins to take shape, one which explicitly turns against narration and which, conversely, advocates the intrinsic value of materiality in photography: images of ephemeral phenomena and states that condense into a specific form in an alien and yet emblematic moment. The aim is not the disclosure or aestheticisation of reality but rather an exploration of the question concerning the relation between visibility and reality.
