The Syntax of Objects, Tim McCreight

The Syntax of Objects

By Tim McCreight

In 2005, Tim McCreight wrote "The Syntax of Objects," his first foray into the genre called creative nonfiction. His elegant book consists of short musings on the relationship we have with the objects in our lives. As a maker of objects, he wonders out loud about the way our memories and senses relate to decisions about what we make and how we go about making choices in the studio and in our living material world.

The revised edition uses the same text, but packages it in a smaller and thicker volume. The new Syntax augments the text with pinhole camera images like the original edition, but this book includes more of them.

This edition replaces the original (gold/red) book, which is now out of print.
