“A six metre long sculpture” is a hybride artist’s book, due to the addition of an essay by Hans Theys on the last 12 pages. For an artist’s book, that is a considerable part contributed by a third party.
The first part of the booklet starting on the couver depicts empty pages with a continuous red and blue scribbling at the bottom of each page. The total length is six meters, hence the sudden cut-off by means of a vertical line at the back of the booklet.
