Concurrent to the creation of the group dance work Direct Path to Detour, which premiered in May 2017, Takahiro Yamamoto invited the project participants and some colleagues to provide artwork representative of their current interests and/or engage in spoken or written discourse based on some of Yamamoto’s writing. By compiling images of multiple artworks, short writings, transcriptions of conversations, and written exchanges, this book intends to engage with the reader intimately, soliciting contemplation and stimulation one page at a time.

This book release event will include artwork by artists featured in the book along with live "soft music" DJ sets by Los Datos, sidony o’neal, Roland Dahwen Wu, and Takahiro Yamamoto. Books will be available for purchase from the artist for $25.
