$26,000 worth of Ltd Edition Recycling.



"$26,000 worth of unsold limited edition prints and signed manuscript pages ready to be recycled /transformed into a new work of art."

On Friday 11th June Jonathan shredded of the unsold prints and signed manuscript pages from Cory Doctorow’s ‘For The Win’ novel. The event was filmed by European Parliament Television and will be aired as part of a program on New Economies of Photography.

BBC Radio Interview

I did a kind of a 'Soundtrack to your life' type interview last week where you pick a song and tell a story - it's not a great story  - more of a story-ette really.



Listen!

Burning The Originals



So, true to my word I'll be destroying the remaining prints and signed "For The Win' manuscript pages, likewise there'll be no more editions, and no discounting. I promised the buyers of the prints that I'd do this only after putting the images on sale a second time to coincide with the official publication date. That's now approaching a month passed.

















You can still buy the remaining signed prints and corresponding signed manuscript pages as well as the last of three massive  1mx1.5m composite prints - this one is the artist's (my) own. Cory owns one, and a collector in Australia bought the the other.



The destruction event will take place on Friday 11th June and will be filmed by  europarltv.eu , the web TV station of the European Parliament.
