Barbara Says – Design e Comunicação Lda. Lisboa. Portugal
The cover, that looks like out of a Z-movie, may tilt the reader in the wrong way. The actual subject of this book is Abyssology, a parascience of the indiscernible, a term appropriated by artistic duo JMG and PP and explored here via an array of texts by scientists, poets, writers, philosophers and art critics. The book presents a text/image combination in which there is no distinction whatsoever between the artists’ own work and images from other sources.
