About the Book
(context) examines the work of artists who have taken the notion of word play a step further. By taking words out of their traditional environment, the work engages the viewer, forcing them to question where language stops and art begins. Is a simple sentence a work of art? If so, how does its setting change one’s perception of it? The work in (context) invites the viewer to read, and then examine, words in a whole new way.
