Null object : Gustav Metzger thinks about nothing by Bruce Gilchrist( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book charts a project by London Fieldworks (Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson) with the participation of internationally celebrated artist Gustav Metzger to create a sculptural work by linking a computer-brain interface with industrial manufacturing technology. Using bespoke software, London Fieldworks produced 3D shape information from EEG readings of Metzger's brainwaves as he attempted to think about nothing. This data was translated into instructions for a manufacturing robot, which carved out the shapes from the interior of a block of stone to create a void space. An introduction by the artists, a text by Gustav Metzger and four contextualising essays by writers across the fields of literature, art, science and technology explore the diverse historical and conceptual grounding for and broader implications of Null Object's production process

Gustav Metzger : auto-creative art by Mathieu Copeland( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in French and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publié à l'occasion de l'exposition de Gustav Metzger ± Supportive, 1966-2011 " au Musée d'art contemporain de Lyon, de février à avril 2013.00L'art auto-créatif est indissolublement lié à ce qui fut son corollaire, l'art auto-destructif, que Gustav Metzger définit dès novembre 1959 dans son premier manifeste auto-publié. Si son oeuvre est souvent envisagé à travers le prisme prépondérant de l'auto-destruction, il nous apparaît aujourd'hui nécessaire de considérer l'envers de toute destruction : l'auto-création. Metzger associe dès ses débuts le développement d'une pensée théorique et philosophique radicale à une expérimentation artistique constante. Ce sont ces deux dimensions que l'exposition met en oeuvre. S'y trouvent réunis pour la première fois, les cinq manifestes ± historiques " publiés par l'artiste entre 1959 et 1964, ainsi qu'un ensemble de documents reflétant sa pensée et son engagement pour un art auto-créatif
