Description

This black-and-white notbook reads as an instructional guide for the artist, dictating sound extractions that Hura would create from a selection of his photographs. “I wanted to try and extract sounds that would reflect a state of being that I had felt at the time of making the image.” The 20-page pamphlet is filled with images on which the artist has hand-written measurements, directional cues, and other notes, including where he intended sound to peak, and not peak, according to the image. Even without sound, this book is a beautiful artform in itself, and offers a rare visual guide to Sohrab’s practice that is just as illuminating as it is thought-provoking.

Signed by Sohrab Hura. Numbered edition of 600.
