Friday Night Flicks: Memories of Science

Memories of Science is an artist’s book by Dorothy Yule. Here’s an entertaining little video of the book in action.



If you are feeling particularly affluent, you can order a copy of Memories of Science through 23 Sandy Gallery.

If you would like to look at more of Dorothy Yule’s work this weekend, and see how some of her mechanisms are made, you could watch a 44 minute video of her November 7, 2016 presentation to The Book Club of California. (There is a voice-only introduction before the pictures start and there are sound problems, but it’s worth putting up with them.)

    (Grrr. Just love the first version as an involuntary offer to the gods of the internet. Let’s hope it works this time,…)
    I think I saw the video and book before. – A very beautiful work, and the song is well performed, too. I think the last stanza should have been left out or should have been altered. I appreciate the idea, but it is too abrupt and it seems like the result of a desperate search for an ending. But of course that is just my view, and overall it is an amazing piece of art. If I had the kind of money to spent on art this book would definitely be on my wish-list.
