GOOGLEmeGOD by Chris Petit

From the Test Centre newsletter:

Filmmaker and writer Chris Petit returns to Test Centre with the new publication GOOGLEmeGOD.  A development from Petit’s Museum of Loneliness pamphlets, GOOGLEmeGOD is the first printed output from that project to be generally available. The book collects writings resulting from travels in Johannesburg, Nuremberg, and the internet. Drawing from the exploded image bank, the Museum explores how ‘experience becomes its own form of curating drifted into cultural margins’. GOOGLEmeGOD engages with the meaning of the image and its relationship to text, urban space, memory and experience ‘to achieve a state between technology & dream’.

The book consists of 6 texts:
Games without frontiers; FRAGMENTS OF THE LOST CIVILISATION; GOOGLEmeGOD I & II; the open book; the museum of loneliness

The book is published in an edition of 300 stamped copies.
Also available are 15 numbered and signed copies with extra holographic material.
