Folding Space/Pressing Time coincides with a September, 2012 exhibition at Ampersand by Gluibizzi & Throwell titled There is no finish line. Similar to the show stylistically, the book is a stand-alone conceptual exploration in which Gluibizzi vibrantly distorts sexually charged Tumblr archive grids & Throwell gives photographic form to the erotic chaos that plagues his recurring dreams of time travel. Designed to be read in opposing directions for each artist, the book is a two-in-one, front-to-back or up-and-down distortion of what we commonly think of as a typical visual reading experience. In this, it mimics well the dynamic space-time jumble of disorienting dreams or the increasingly authorless & temporally indeterminate web space that is rapidly redefining what we think of as image archives.
