"This book is a trip. A trip through the visual realms of the artist Fabian Marti. Its prevailing cosmic black is subtly accentuated now and then by color: the milky white of mountain crystal, the raw dun of rock caves, the sandy beige of pillared Greek ruins. Or color as a by-product of alchemistic photogram processes. The shapes are original and familiar. Marti reinterprets symbols and reviews the cultural history of modernity and beyond. A journey through time as past and present blend in simultaneity. Digital and analog united. Scanned objects revealed: mushrooms, stones, toast, a pair of hands. And modified pictures from outside sources. This is a book about altered states of consciousness triggered by substances and shapes. It's about spiritual views and mystical experiences --and their negation. Not somber, not sad, not heavy, but contemplative and awake. An oscillation between yes and no."--Publisher's website viewed January 24, 2017.
