This book/object makes a wry comment on the decay of U.S. cities in light of the L.A. riots. "A standard matchbook was altered to comment on our volatile society in the aftermath of the L.A. riots and particularly on the power of simplistic solutions.”--artist’s statement. 29 June 2009 (printedmatter.org).
