Krištof Kintera / Think Nothing About It

This book of transformations (or album of statues, drawings, ideas, discoveries, sculptural installations) by contemporary Czech artist and activist, Krištof Kintera, takes the reader on a remarkable journey through the world in which we live - a world of novel scenery, mutant cities and anomalous landscapes.
 
Think Nothing About It is a book for browsing, musing, simpering, giggling, protesting, judging, criticizing... The motionless is set in motion and inanimate objects find a voice. There is the spawning of bizarre metamorphoses, mysterious deviations and ambiguous reversals. Many mouths speak at once, and things, otherwise lifeless and insensate, are given words.
