Artist Statement: "Candace Hicks creates interactive installations and artist’s books that examine gender, voice, and parallel universes through the analysis of fictional literature. Believing that the stories we tell each other can reveal more about our beliefs and biases than mundane experience, Hicks mines genre fictions to uncover the subtle ways that literature reflects inequalities. She assigns works of fiction the status of alternate realities in which connections spring from the attention of the reader."

By Candace Hicks & Richard Kostelanetz
2005. Edition of 100.

10 black mobius strips embossed with white letters housed in a 4 x 6.25 x 2.25" plexi-case. Poetry by Kostelanetz. Book design by Hicks.

This artist book of Kostenlanetz's "stories in the shape of syntactically continuous loops that lack beginnings or ends" is dedicated to John Barth. The theme of this work is based on Barth's idea that "in the beginning is a story that began only when ..." And so, Hicks and Kostenlanetz have put together a collection of mobius strips embossed with continuous fictions. And then invite you to "Make Your Own Infinity."
