We are excited to announce the publication of where our secrets meet and other derivatives of losing. This 240 page full colour magazine is the final stage of a many month collaboration between Eric and his pal Keyede Osuntokun.
Eric and Keyede met by accident last spring at a library in Calgary. Keyede was carrying an unread copy of Richard Florida's 10th anniversary edition of The Rise of the Creative Class. After a quick conversation they set in motion a grueling, but rewarding four month process of colour coding individual copies of Florida's book. Using a set of five different critical and affective criteria - each with a colour-scheme - Eric and Keyede filled up their own copies of the book with highlighter ink and marginalia. Two generic copies of the books had become wholly unique objects - each inscribed with cantankerous objections, personal histories, political views, and honest feelings.
Made up of 522 photographs, where our secrets meet and other derivatives of losing presents Eric and Keyde's books as material objects. Each book - page after page - is set next to the other, inviting readers to contrast and compare the two editions while adding their own thoughts to the conversation.
