    From the artists' website: "How to convey ephemeral, performative practices based around unique and inventive media within the fixed and standardized format of a book? This publication by iii presents itself as a pack of large cards that the reader is invited to explore. The cards are shuffled at random, forcing intruders to reverse-engineer its sorting algorithm. Each individual copy of the book was manually assembled following a procedural score composed by Lars Kynde and performed by iii. Contributions range from theoretical essays to poetic exercises with text and image, reflecting a wide range of practices seeking radically subjective approaches to media in performance. DIY media technologies, avant-garde music rituals, artistic-scientific hybrids, idiosyncratic new instruments, speculative business approaches, phenomenological investigations, open-source and feminist perspectives on digital culture are all present here as part of a cut-up treatise on media less traveled." Contributors include Ewen Chardronnet, Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, Lars Kynde, Alessandro Ludovico, Matteo Marangoni, Jonathan Reus, Joel Ryan & Kristina Andersen, Dieter Vandoren, Anne Wellmer, Godfried-Willem Raes, and Yolanda Uriz. Edited by Matteo Marangoni. 84 loose-leaf prints in screen-printed cardstock sleeve. Library has 498/800. Printed by Ando Bv, The Hague.
