Occupied territory by Lynne Cohen ( Book )
5 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: In 1987 Aperture published Lynne Cohen's first monograph, Occupied Territory, an exploration of space as simulated experience--a sham reality, idealized and standardized. Now, Aperture is publishing a newly expanded and updated reissue of this classic monograph, making Cohen's pioneering work available to a contemporary audience and situating her within the lineage of Lewis Baltz, Stephen Shore and other celebrated New Topographics photographers. In the 20 years of work contained in the book, Cohen turns her view camera toward classrooms, science laboratories, testing facilities, waiting rooms and other interior spaces where function triumphs over aesthetics. What decorations the inhabitants might have added to these rooms to make them more inviting--mostly phony attempts at warmth or individualism--only serve to amplify their artifice and uniformity. In cool, functional offices, futuristic reception areas, lifeless party rooms, escapist motel rooms and haunting killing chambers, Cohen surveys a society of surface, contradiction and social engineering. In her hands, clouds peel off walls, forest glades invade indoor tennis courts and the awkward lives of furniture are revealed. Drawing on a background in sculpture, Cohen records the world's readymade sculptures, waiting to be framed by the photograph. This new edition of Occupied Territory includes unpublished images drawn from the time period in which the book was made, encouraging a reexamination of Cohen's deft exploration of Topographic seeing

And I'll scratch yours by Peter Gabriel ( Recording )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The original concept was that And I'll Scratch Yours would serve as a companion piece to Gabriel's 2010 covers album Scratch My Back. The idea was to give the artists whose songs Gabriel covered on Scratch My Back a medium to reciprocate? And I'll Scratch Yours would feature those artists covering Gabriel's songs. However, several of the artists ultimately declined to record covers of Gabriel's material. The release version of the album deviated from its initial concept in having two new artists (Feist and Joseph Arthur) contributing covers to the album
