Get a glimpse inside Dale Chihuly’s creative process in Chihuly Faxes. With 21 color photographs and 130 faxes handpicked from an archive of 7,500, this publication, featuring a foreword by renowned author Francine Prose, boasts an analysis of technology’s role in communicating bold ideas. In her words, Prose likens this collection to looking at “dreams about art” and suggests that we, as a society, “may have undervalued the fax transmission. This assemblage of words and sketches reflects the depth of scale prominent in Chihuly’s work as well as the fax machine’s unique capacity to bring his ideas to life. Experience the intimacy of pen to paper and the immediacy of an artist’s energy with faxed images from exhibitions, installations, projects, books and letters along with a chronology of the artist’s work and a who’s who of fax recipients and subjects.
