Without day : proposals for a new Scottish Parliament( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term "without day" refers to the "adjournment" of the final sitting of the Scottish Parliament in 1707 to some future but unspecified date, "sine die"--(without day). "Without Day" was an open competition, with information circulated across Scotland and internationally, inviting proposals for artworks, performances and other interventions relating to the new Scottish parliament. 100 contributions are included from writers, artists and architects, whose number include Douglas Gordon, Robert Crawford, David Bellingham, Ian Stephen, Richard Price, herman de vries, Tom Pow, Halla Beloff, Gael Turnbull and Pavel Buchler among others. The fact that these proposals are "without day" and will never be realized has allowed imaginations to take flight, and the resultant provocations, critiques, and utopias provide a springboard into Scotland's postdevolution and postmillennial future. "Without Day" comes with a mini-CD of a new audio work by William Furlong, comprising recordings made around Scotland on May 6, 1999 - the day of the first elections to the new Scottish parliament - in which people discuss their aspirations, hopes and dreams for the future
