About the Book
This book collects and expands upon an art show that happened in June 2007. The show was a "multi-media art puzzle" that was offered to the public in the form of a contest.
The contents of the book are as follows, an introductory essay regarding the motivations for the show, full page-full color, reproductions of each of the 33 clues from the show, a full collection of all the attempted solutions of the puzzle that were submitted, the actual solution of the puzzle accompanied by an explanation of the solution, as well as a philosophical essay regarding the theory of .meaning.
The book is considered the proper culmination of the whole project and is intended as an art-object in its own right.
