Various fires and MLK by Scott McCarney( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward Ruscha's second book, Various Small Fires and Milk, (1964) was published in Los Angeles, California. It presents a series of photographs of small fires--cigarettes, matches, a stove, a barbecue--and surprises us with an unrelated image of a glass of milk as the last plate. Various Fires and MLK uses this book's time (1964) and place (Los Angeles) as a point of departure. It adopts its layout while subverting the droll collection of photographs and non-sequetor coda by adopting images imbued with historic meaning: the Watts riots of 1965; the aftermath of Rodney King's beating in 1991; reactions to the shooting death of Manual Jamines, a Guatemalan immigrant, in 2010. The Civil Rights Act, a landmark piece of legislation in the United States that outlawed major forms of discrimination including racial segregation, was passed in 1964. The use of MLK's picture is a typographic gestalt of Ruscha's title (MILK/MLK), and is a surprise in this sequence considering his message of nonviolent civil disobedience. It is this disconnect that relates Various Small Fires to the fires that followed"--Scott McCarney/VisualBooks website, viewed June 30, 2011
A selection of cards from the collection of Lela McCarney by Scott McCarney( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The cards represented in this book were culled from a collection my mother assembled over a lifetime of interest in cooking and health. The original cards, housed in a wooden box crafted by my father, may be seen as an unintentional Fluxus project containing hundreds of written instructions for potential performance events. The stains, attributes, and annotations are visual cues akin to Proust's notion of 'involuntary memory' as evoked by the taste of his madeleine. This selection, though ordered much like a menu, is meant to be consumed as a visual rather than a culinary feast."--Page [35]

The decider by Scott McCarney( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The "Are We Ready Yet?" series of books dating from the 2000s addressed the shifting landscape, language, psychology, and politics of national homeland security. The title references a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publication titled 'Are You Ready? A Guide to Citizen Preparedness.' This booklet was eerily reminiscent of 'What to Do in Case of a Nuclear Disaster,' published by the US government in 1954 ... Am I surprised the tone, manner, and type of information the government is willing to share with the general pop has changed little in fifty years? The Bush books are rather one dimensional, in keeping with their subject. Any depth comes from the cathartic purpose they serve(d). Socialand political culture continue to inspire work that provides a civil outlet of frustration and/or outrage"--Artist's website, viewed on March 18, 2016
