READ In Montreal
by Kyle Flemmer
Produced on a 1940 Remington Rand Deluxe Model 5, base currency is a series of concrete or visual poems. Each of the parts works within constraints imposed by the analog machine to investigate the social and political significance of money. Flemmer seeks to graph the unchanging premises of our economic system: the consolidation of wealth, the impact of money on politics, and the stratification of social classes.
20 numbered and signed prints of each part have been produced on quality card stock, now out of print from The Blasted Tree's Store.
