A New Dictionary of Art: One word 3000 definitions Ed. Robert Good
Robert Good is a data & language artist and a HEIST exhibitor.
A New Dictionary of Art takes a refreshingly alternative approach to the question ‘What is Art?’. Take your pick from over 3,000 definitions compiled from the internet via chat-rooms and discussion forums as well as from the more established authorities, artists and institutions. Passions run high as formal sits alongside informal, humorous alongside vulgar: all are left to fight it out on the page.
The result is a streetwise cacophony of creativity and an energizing summation of the potentials of art.
Killingly good ... both splendid and splendidly bonkers'

John Clark, British painter and builder of people
'Quite possibly the most ridiculously brilliant and wonderfully unnecessary book ever - gloriously essential'
