Thomas Ashcraft: Universal Gum & Tradecake Author: Ashcraft, Thomas; Brandauer, Aline Chipman Publisher: Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe Release Date: 2000 Seller Category: EXHIBITION CATALOGS Qty Available: 1 Condition: Used: Excellent Sku: 00862 Notes: Near Fine, one 9 1/2" x 32" sheet of paper folded to create eight 9 1/2" x 8" pages, pictorial and full-color featuring an introduction to Thomas Ashcraft and to the Laboratory Exhibitions series, of which this is number 4, by Museum Director Stuart A. Ashman. Also featuring an essay by Museum Curator Aline Chipman Brandauer titled, "In Defense of Little Science", a Biography, a list of Selected Exhibitions, and many full-color images of the scientist-artist's work including "Blue Whizzer Time Gum", "Sovereign Microbe Nations", and "Bacteriophage Coin". This catalog was produced in conjunction with an exhibition of Ashcraft's work presented at the Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe July 14 to October 15, 2000 as part of the Museum's The Laboratory Exhibitions. Thomas Ashcraft is an independent scientist who makes art from scientific experimentation. From Brandauer's essay: " Universal Gum and Tradecake continues Ashcraft's interest in creating or tapping into parallel universes and setting up 'translation systems' between one world and another...Ashcraft is capable of providing new insights into [both art and science] while being constrained by neither." Very minimal rubbing to covers. Sharp tips, all pages intact and unmarked, all folds secure.
