5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, well written and well translated., 1 Feb 2010
I really enjoyed this book. Having had an interest in artists working in the field of relational aesthetics, but not really having had the way of working contextualized previously, I found this book to be extremely valuable. The book is split into six main essays, initially outlining the concept of Relational Form before going on to the following sections: Art of the 1990's, Space-time exchange factors, The theoretical legacy of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Screen Relations. The final essay introduces some ideas for the future of relational aesthetics and introduces Felix Guattari's theories of subjectivity in relation to Lacan, Kant, Nietzche and Freud. There is also a glossary and contents index at the back.
The book feels good too, good size of page and text, perfect for me to make notes when necessary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun toy, durable, but you have to stay close..., 1 Feb 2010

The doctor who figure and remote control K9 are both well made and durable, loved by the 4 year old child I bought it for and reasonably priced. The main criticism I have of it is that you have to stand pretty close to the K9 figure to make it work, which means that it has to be followed around pretty closely. I kind of wonder what the point of having a remote control toy is if you always pretty much have to be within touching distance of it???
