Project details

Overview

r/p/m is a book for the artist Paul Cullen whose sculptural installations of everyday objects evoke the discoveries of scientific principles. The book follows the creation of the works from research, readings, sketches, and studies, to finally a series of documentary photos of the sculptures installed in the artist’s studio. Returning full circle to research and reflection, Cullen then proposes installations of his work in historically significant sites such as the Greenwich Royal Observatory and the Linnaeus Garden; these proposals for fictional stagings are carried out on the multiple, interchangeable covers. The book overall references scientific manuals and pamphlets from an earlier era.
