ODYSSEY WORKS: TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCES FOR AN AUDIENCE OF ONE. Abraham Burickson and Ayden LeRoux. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2016. 224 pp. with 100 col. ills. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781616895150 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: Odyssey Works infiltrates the life of one person at a time to create a customtailored, life-altering performance. It may last for one day or a few months and consists of experiences that blur the boundaries of life and art -- is that subway mariachi band, used book of poetry, or meal with a new friend real or a part of the performance? Central to this book is their 2013 performance for Rick Moody, author of The Ice Storm. His Odyssey lasted four months and included a fake children's book, introducing the themes of his performance, and a cello concert in a Saskatchewan prairie (which Moody almost missed after being stopped at customs with, suspiciously, no idea why he was traveling to Canada). The book includes Moody's interviews with Odyssey Works, an original short story by Amy Hempel, and six proposals for a new theory of making art.
