“I average several thousand faxes a year. I need to make thousands of faxes to sort of distribute my ideas. Because as you write a letter, of course, you’re thinking. It’s simply a way to make your mind work.”


Additional Insights

This assemblage of words and sketches reflects the depth of scale prominent in Chihuly’s work as well as the fax machine’s unique capacity to bring his ideas to life.

It features a foreword by Francine Prose, renowned author and former president of PEN American Center, in which she analyzes technology's role in communicating bold ideas. In her words, this collection is like looking at "dreams about art," and we, as a society, "may have undervalued the fax transmission."
