Project Statement

by J.Drucker


Ruth Laxon's work comments on the dystopic condition of contemporary life. This book is conceived within that larger frame, but with a strong sense of the humor invoked by the "Ho" of her title.

[Ho+Go]2=It

Ruth Laxson

title note: The title reads as a version of a chemical formula that has been altered to be about culture. [J.Drucker]
