Tauba Auerbach
New York City, USA: Self-published, 2011
31.1 x 26 x 6.4 cm.
0.4mm polycarbonate, acrylic, brass, UV cured ink

Float was originally shown as part of A Book is Not an X, a solo exhibition at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, East Hampton, in August of 2011. Curated by Jeremy Sanders from 6 Decades Books, the show featured six sculptural works that deconstruct and re-contextualize the book form. When placed atop a light box, Float reveals implied three dimensional forms printed on the clear polycarbonate pages.

One of the eight books is currently being offered on Ebay, with a Buy-It-Now price of $37,997 US, here.
