In 2015, Shirt began highlighting sentences in the books he was reading. The simple action of emphasizing language and text, to the point of communicating highly specific notions to a viewer, obsessed the artist enough that he is continuing the practice currently. Between 8-10 titles have been produced thus far. Shown here are examples from books both written by Elena Filipovic: 'The Apparently Marginal Activities Of Marcel Duchamp' and 'David Hammons: Bliz-aard Ball Sale'. The work is to be exhibited no less than three books at a time, and are able to be read through and handled by viewers with no gloves or apparatus necessary.
