Eclipse Body & Soul Syntax

Pre-Echo Press presents Eclipse Body & Soul Syntax, an artist book by New York City based, English artist, Nick Relph. 

Amounting to a sort of unofficial and urgent index of a new city quickly replacing an old one, the book is a collection of scans made over the past decade, using a library wand scanner, clandestinely collected from building sites' public postings, all over New York City. 

Extreme high resolution butts up against the handheld nature of the scanning process, and the uncanny irreality of manufactured light and space of the construction renderings, to create an ominous dictionary of the dystopian present of urban cities around the world.  A mysterious object, testifying to what will surely be our future ruins. 

  • 10.5 x 12.25 inches, portrait
  • Softcover, 176 pages
  • ISBN 978-1-63901-685-3
