Lawrence Weiner | MOI + TOI & NOUS
MOI + TOI & NOUS
Toronto, Canada: Shark Editions, 1995
2.5 x 24.5 x 5.5 cm
Edition of 500 signed and numbered copies
Published by John Goodwin's Shark Editions (who also produced works by Mark Dion, Moyra Davey, Maurizio Nannucci, Hans Peter Feldmann and many others), this battery powered wrist watch features a custom rubber band and is housed in a hinged gift box and slip case, accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate. The face of the watch features Weiner's text MOI + TOI & NOUS, with X's and O's representing the hours.
The intended edition of 500 was never realized, and only 350 copies were produced.
