"A year ago, I started to make a piece of work as an exercise to overcome a creative block; I would attach handles to things - things I₂d made or found ... In the end the process of doing this developed its own momentum - and its own logic. The process was a mixture of heuristics, and psychic automatism but in three dimensions, orbiting round the device of attaching a handle. Were they "assisted readymades?" A set of conceptual tools for reality testing? A search for a Freudian Lost Object? The illustration of a Design Algorithm at work? This book is a catalogue of the objects accompanied by texts which develop the idea without in any way "explaining" it. This will include an introduction by Dr. Wayne Clements, a short fiction by S.W. Garnett, inspired by the collection and a comprehensive, if not always comprehensible, "index" which will generate unexpected connections between the Things and the Words" --The artist's website (accessed 12/11/2013). Artist's book. Color images of objects with handles attached.
