David Cotterrell: The Impossible Project

David Cotterrell: The Impossible Project
Library Shelf Location 18.COTT
Publication Date 2003
Description The first book to chronicle the work of British artist David Cotterrell, The Impossible Project explores Cotterrell's fascination with technology, politics and romance. Cotterrell's work often pushes the parameters of art and scientific discovery: playing with an acknowledged tradition of eccentric invention, he customises existing technologies to assert new use values.  A practice divided between the gallery and the public realm, the differing demands of each intervention are reflected in Cotterrell's sensitivity to site as both location and subject. With a preface by Niru Ratnam, The Impossible Project includes specially commissioned texts from a variety of practitioners, from architects and art theorists to political commentators and scientists, all investigating themes addressed by Cotterell's unique world view.
