About this Item

small 8vo. black cloth with title illustration in gray on cover. 24 pages. created by Andrew Atkinson. Published in a limited edition of 50 copies, each signed and numbered by "Jaldaboath." An early example of social and documentary photography, Street Life in London, by Adolph Smith and John Thomson, is the basis of this volume. Originally published in 1878, it was a project to photograph the street life of the London poor using the Woodburytype photomechanical process. The Nag Hammadi Library is the source of information about the worldview of the Gnostics and their blend of Platonic knowledge and Christo-Judaic understanding of the world. Characters from the Nag Hammadi texts are used as quasi historical people, involved in seeking redemption. Jaldaboath is a fallen character within gnosis, and as creator of the mundane world, is seeking to redeem himself through mundane means, namely through a neurotic and modern attachment to the safety signs that articulate our bureaucratic environments. Jaldaboath's work is the principle object of study within the findings of the recently re-opened Nag Hammadi site and an endless source of interest and pity to Pistis Sophia, who edits, compiles, and interprets the photographs, writings, objects, and miscellany of the absent Jaldaboath in an effort to unveil the modern world. Andrew Atkinson re-conceptualized the original source material to create a conceptual work of art. He printed this work during his 2003 Sally R. Bishop Residency. Includes three black-and-white photographs individually mounted on separate pages. black cloth with title illustration in gray on cover. Bookseller Inventory # 103056
