Seventy photocopies made at the Queens Public Library in Astoria, New York on May 3, 2006
"Starting with a blank sheet of paper, the process of copying a copy is repeated seventy times. The result is a sequence of abstract visual feedback. These seventy copies were made in Astoria, Queens at the Public Library closest to the location of the garage where the first photocopy was made by Chester Carlson in 1938."--From the author. Also includes an essay on the history of xerography. Collection has an "Artist's Proof" copy (89 p. : ill. ; 28 x 22 cm.) in addition to a second printing of the work (#2 of 2), bound with library thesis binding at two separate binderies.
