CHIHULY FAXES. Francine Prose. Chihuly Workshop, Seattle, 2016. 160 pp. with 148 col. ills. 27 x 21 cm. ISBN 9781576841990 In English.
Publisher's description: Get a glimpse inside Dale Chihuly's creative process in Chihuly Faxes. With 21 color photographs and 130 faxes handpicked from an archive of 7,500, this publication features a foreword by Francine Prose, renowned author and former president of PEN American Center, in which she analyzes technology's role in communicating bold ideas. In her words, this collection is like looking at "dreams about art," and we, as a society, "may have undervalued the fax transmission." This assemblage of words and sketches reflects the depth of scale prominent in Chihuly's work as well as the fax machine's unique capacity to bring his ideas to life. Experience the intimacy of pen to paper and the immediacy of an artist's energy with faxed images from exhibitions, installations, projects, books, and letters, along with a chronology of the artist's work and a who's who of fax recipients and subjects.
