At the abandon/hope exhibition at the Spiral garden in Tokyo, a very beautiful exhibition catalogue was released. The book is a 2-volume set, one volume is “Abandon” (which features the Tokyo works), and the other is “Hope” (the Uno works) and was released in 3 versions.
These are the 3 versions:
– Special Version I:
Limited to 50 copies, including two original prints (one from ‘abandon’ and ‘hope’ each) with David’s signature and the ‘playbutton’ device of the sound created for the exhibition in the special case.
– Special Version II:
Limited to 250 copies with David’s signature, including the ‘playbutton’ device of the sound created for the exhibition.
– Normal Version:

The play button is like a round pin-on badge with an image of David’s photograph “Ice Storm” and it has an mp3 player embedded inside, the music is Taylor Deupree’s “Too Close To Being Far Away From Everything”. It comes with a USB connector.
