Summary expansion
"This book presents six vignettes, from the Bronze Age to the present, in the history of international trade across six continents. The background information for the poetry comes from economics and anthropology texts. The structure of the book is full of cultural information as well, representing a combination of Western businessman and indigenous inhabitant. The poems are hidden within six silkscreened and die-cut regimental ties, from regiments sent to colonial territories of Britain, bound in a panorama format. Only the word "pull" is visible at the top of each tie. When the white interlining is pulled up slightly from its armature, the words gradually appear. The text is not chronological. It travels East, starting with the Wahgi in Papua New Guinea. Subsequent stops are made in the Pacific at the Marchesan Islands, South America, Africa, the Middle East, and East Asia....The case is structurally based on envelopes in which ties are sold in Italy, with a raffia braid in place of a ribbon tie. Most of the imagery was drawn from the 1942 Parker Brothers "South American Trading Game".... -- Artist's statement, laid in
