Broken Dimanche Press is delighted to present work from a publication-in-progress by Kandis Williams. These original drawings signed and numbered are placed alongside extracts from a text My Favourite Pyramid by David Dagen in bespoke folio editions. There are three separate folios, each containing original drawings and sections from the nine-part erotic story. These will in turn be collated and produced in a handbound, limited edition BDP publication.
‘I went down’, (from Greek κατὰ) the first line of Plato’s work on governance and the creation of the ideal society, The Republic, is the cue to a story that involves the descent into the erotic possibility of the self, exploring the abolition of personal limits through the sexual and sensual.
It's also a guide book about giving good head.
Kandis Williams (b. 1985) studied at Cooper Union in New York and the École des beaux-arts in Paris. She has exhibited in both the US and Europe. Most recently her work has been shown in Art Brussels with Peres Projects, with whom she will exhibit again in Berlin during 2012. Her most recent solo show was with New Capital Projects, Chicago.
David Dagen (b. 1937) started writing erotica while working in North Africa as a member of the French foreign-service. His most well known work, Alexandria, Adieu has been translated into over ten languages. It is the nom du plume of John Holten
The Narrative Machine is a unique edition published on commission. It is a system of presentation, furniture and room architecture that can be manipulated and altered based on the preferences of the reading public.
The system of Sandoval has been seen most recently in the exhibitions, Say It Loud (District Berlin), Savvy Contemporary, Ivy Over Ivy (Büro BDP) Circuito Berlin (Cervantes Institute) and also in The Rescue of the Effects at (General Public). For such exhibitions Sandoval installed carefully planned walls and other structures including tables, chairs and moveable panels all of which housed artworks, publications and screens. Echoing perhaps some of the early work of Dieter Roth such as his chairs but also his monumental work ‘Gartenskulptur’, the fixed nature of the walls will be broken with the growth of ivy, giving time the chance to leave its own trace in the space.
The Narrative Machine is part of, and houses, various public and private collections.

[9/12/12 10:56:01 PM] antoine renard: "There was something appealing in those projection lines; they were like a diagram of the stock market's breath, that was pretty clear. Still, that was not the final answer. And my main goal became very clear to me: to create a mechanical trading system that is based on the stock market modeling rather than on some combination of technical analysis indicators. OK, the projection line idea is good, but how can we get buy and sell signals from it? That was one more of the missing links; and I spent 10 years trying to answer this question (Timing Solution/Market Trader users saw the steps of this quest in the programs). I always had a feeling that the projection line lives its own life reflecting the breath of the stock market while we need something different to get buy/sell signals. It looks like Quantum Astro model reveals one more missing link. "
