Wien: k/haus, 2001. Hardcover. An Austrian artists' book packaged with an engineer's compass and a four lens action camera, all housed in a custom fitted green tupperware box. This two book set appears to have been issued to document an exhibition of design with work from design students at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna and the Royal College of Art, London. The "exhibit is made up of work-in-progress responses to some of the major issues raised around contemporary theory dealing with globalization and new technologies. Each has interpreted this project according to their own understanding of the imperatives of design in contemporary culture and, in this way, the project aims to open up an increasing vital debate around the nature and role of practice in the twenty-first century" (Vorwort / Foreword). The books include "Global Tools," bound with white cloth spine and white paper covered boards titled in black on front and "Think Tank," which is side-stapled in black paper wrappers with white title to front. Both books include photographic illustrations of the design projects with descriptions of the pieces (some in German and some in English).
