by Mahoney, Robert and Paul Lamarre
New York, 1989. Signed; 261/1500 copies. Softcover. NF. White, oblong, stapled wraps. Thin piece of cedar wood stapled onto cover, nearly the same size, with "EIDIA" in black ink.  with bw images throughout. From the exhibition of April to May 1989 at the Barbara Braathen Gallery in NY. With an essay by Robert Mahoney. "EIDIA (pronounced "idea") is the pseudonym under which the American transdisciplinary artists Paul Lamarre and Melissa P. Wolf have collaborated since 1986. The name EIDIA (created by Lamarre) is derived from the ancient Greek word for idea, "eidos", but the acronym has many possible meanings that Lamarre and Wolf outlined in their 1978 manifesto: Each Idea Defines Itself Aesthetically; Esthetic Interpretations Directs Imaginative Action; Everything I Do Is Art; Every Individual Does Individual Art; Every Individual Develops Ideal Aesthetics; Every Intellect Develops Intuitive Art; and Ecological Involvement Demands Immediate Action/Individual Action." The dedication is to Hedy Lamarre, who in this case, Heddy is a dog, not the actress (although dogs can be quite good actors...).
