SC, 72 pp., stapled

David Horvitz’s self-portrait with his head in his hands, ocean waves crashing in the background, was initially uploaded by him to the Wikimedia Commons, and placed on various Wikipedia pages. Mood Disorder documents the appropriation of David Horvitz’s photograph across the internet. The image began to circulate more intensely, appearing on over a hundred websites as a “stock” photo to illustrate articles on a wide range of mental health and wellness issues.

This artist’s book is still available at various selling venues.

mail d.d. 15 March 2017 from David Horvitz:

Hi Everyone,

Here is info for March’s studio rent edition.

It is tracing paper.

I have traced with pen 35 scratches on a board that my cat has scratched.

It is March, and this month I turn 35.

So this is using cat scratches to count the years!

This is actually part of the process of making another work, which should be done in some months… Where I needed to get a trace of a cat scratch to make a gold foil stamp of it…

‘July’s edition is a small ceramic depicting two seahorses mating. The seahorses were the object from my Frieze Projects in New York last May. I made these ceramics in Portland, Oregon. I pressed the seahorse into the clay… Looks like a fossil…’. David Horvitz, from mail 25 June 2016.

“There is a tree native to Australia that grows next to my house in Los Angeles. The Latin name is Syzygium Australe. It has these red/purple berries that are like small cherries. When they fall to the ground they stain the cement purple. I’ve always loved it when plants colored the monotonous infrastructures of a city. So I collected the fruit and made my own stains onto watercolor paper.”
From a mail d.d. 28-09-2016 by David Horvitz.
