This is a collection of writings by different authors that illustrates a variety of concepts around Dion's practice. Both the wider and local contexts are explored in detail. The historical context of art as `ready mades' is touched on briefly and used to support Dion's conceptual reasons for his practice. It is also suggested that Dion is a `process artist `(Renfrew 1999 p, 21), that is, someone to whom the process of the work seems more important than the end product. Most chapters are presented as traditional qualitative research papers. .This book is useful for looking at how a contemporary artist has used a variety of different subject matters to influence his practice. The historical background re. Surrealist `ready mades' isuseful in helping establish context for object- based practice.
