Space Digest Today:

This 43-artist book project from 1985 was edited and published by Robert Bowen and Richard Edelman. Joan Ades was the consulting editor. It focused on subject matter loosely related to the topic of space. Most of the artists involved came from the unlikely combination of experimental photography and experimental film. The works in the project were all hand-made by the artists involved, and the project was contained within a wooden box designed to also function as a frame that could display a single work, which could then be rotated out. It is also a kind of Duchampian boîte-en-valise because the individual works contained in the box are distinct and unbound. Theoretically the works from the box could even be taken out, framed and exhibited as a complete traveling exhibition.
