A view of Simon Denny’s “Secret Power” illustrated book featuring essays by Robert Leonard and Chris Kraus

Published by Mousse Publishing and Koenig Books, and produced in collaboration with designer David Bennewith, this book is a guide to Simon Denny‘s “Secret Power” project presented at Venice Biennale in 2015 as New Zealand’s representative.  Denny‘s work focuses on Internet politics, technological obsolescence and national identity.

“It’s a terriblie recognition, and one that has driven some who’s absorbed it to desperation and madness. Walking through London’s chilly dusk streets to purchase a pencil, Virgina Woolf recorded acute observations of urban life in 1930 but remained unaware of the information moving in invisible waves through the air.” –  Here Begins the Dark Sea, Chris Kraus.

“Secret Power” is available to purchase here!
