Concrete Press, 2013
Hardcover, 80 pages, $57.99
Operating in the hybrid zone between sculpture, craft, miniature making, and conceptual art, Visual Studies faculty member Matteo Bittanti creates seven self-portraits that simultaneously appropriate and reconfigure a peculiar medium: die-cast model cars. This limited-edition book features photographs by the artist Colleen Flaherty and a long conversation between Bittanti and the Bay Area artist Juan Carlos Quintana.
