In tandem, Cypis collaborated with LM Projects who mirrored her process, research and epiphanies into a nonlinear book form. Timelines, oral histories, archival material, original artworks and mediation methodologies intertwine on pages that shift in surface and scale. Cypis reconstructs a cannon all her own—one that integrates the conceptual with the political and deepens her investigation into aesthetics, ethics and engagement, the roots of her practice since the late 1970s. Printed in an edition of 134, each book is signed and numbered by the artist.
