Daniel Olson | Small World

Daniel Olson
Small World
Cambridge/Sackville/Lethbridge, Canada: Cambridge Galleries, Owens Art Gallery, SAAG: 2000
44 pp., 17.5 x 11.5 cm., softcover
Edition size unknown

Published to coincide with the traveling exhibition of the same name, which was presented at the Owens Art Gallery from 16 March to 29 April, 2001, this slim volume features many of the artist’s editions and bookworks, including Factorial 12 and The Value of Pi to One Million Digits

features an introduction by Gordon Hatt, an essay by Martin Arnold and an interview conducted by Christina Ritchie. Ritchie focuses on performance and play in Olson’s work, something that extends beyond his performative work and into his videos (which are essentially performances for the camera) and into the multiples, most of which are toys and wind-up musical devices similar to the work of Joe Jones. 

Small World is available from the co-publisher, here, for $5.00.
