Jason Dodge: A Permanently Open Window published by Mousse Publishing

Jason Dodge’s practice attempts to give new life to objects, exploring their potential and provoking the viewer’s cognitive ability to imagine a corresponding narrative. Focusing on specific aspects of two works, A permanently open windowand Changing the lights – From rose light to white light, from white light to rose light, by hand, over and over, Jason Dodge’s artist book is not merely a documentation of his works but, in the artist’s words, “a record of light changing over a day, in one case naturally and in one case manually”. The publication was conceived and designed to accompany Jason Dodge’s permanent installation realized for the Maramotti Collection, in Reggio Emilia – a permanently open window located in what was once the tower of a factory’s electrical power plant, an abandoned industrial space, now transformed into a commercial outlet – and contains selected images from both projects, as well as a text.
