street terms: vol. 1

thought i'd put a lil more spark on this recent action...

Street Terms, Vol. 1
Artists: Elaina Morgan + Jeremy Kennedy
Photography: Rebecca Ramirez
In photographic form, Street Terms, Vol. 1 is the first in a series of art books cataloging the collaborative language-twisting works by artists Elaina Morgan (Brooklyn, NY) + Jeremy Kennedy (Los Angeles, CA).

Each installment is catalyzed by a coincidental encounter with a tangible, incomplete set of characters. Utilizing only what's included in their alphanumeric find, the artists create a collection of succinct absurdist meditations on contemporary culture and city life.

Vol. 1 features arrangements of mirror-polished brass letters discovered in the wilds of Echo Park, Los Angeles and shot on verdant turf by photographer Rebecca Ramirez.

~ 26 page full-color book (saddle-bound)
~ materials - matte cover stock, matte photo stock
~ measure - 6" x 8"
~ edition - 44
