Further information:
'Chinese Whispers' is in the "series of paperbacks published between 1972-1978 constitute early and original works in the development of the genre Artists' Books / Book Art. Locating the book as structured place with the use of photography, the artists investigate imagery in relation to the page and the book format to develop new ways of reading. Primarily visual with embodied texts the books construct time-based and specialised narratives within the sequencing of pages. In 'Chinese Whispers' a corner cupboard is constructed to the proportions of the open book to become both represented and literal space of the opening. Within this space words and phrases are given object status as the means of integrating text and image and developing the narrative thread." (from the Weproductions website)
