    1. Daniel Spoerri s snare pictures involved trapping a set of physical circumstances a cluttered table top, a pile of debris fixing it together, and presenting it on the wall as an artwork Here, the literary equivalent, detailing the microscopic details and convoluted histories of every object on his table one morning It s or less a prolonged and arguably pointless game in the vein of Perec s attempt to exhaust a street corner, but full of fascinating details of the 60s art world contributing frie [...]

    2. Generally speaking, what an artist do, is to examine his or hers world as if they were detectives looking for clues in a crime scene What we have here is not a crime scene at least I think not but a mere table full of objects Artist Daniel Spoerri investigates the various objects that are randomly on his table, and comments on each item Now, this sounds sort of tedious, but in the hands of Spoerri and other loose members of the Fluxus movement, it becomes something hysterical and profound Oddly [...]

    3. daniel spoerri has created something of a literary analog to his snare pictures tables which he fastened objects to and hung as art the anecdoted topography of chance constructs a world out of the small items that happened to be on a particular table of spoerri s at an arbitrarily chosen time this book can be a lot of things it can be a pin hole autobiography, a fluxus informed theory of art, an illustrated journey through the fetishized clutter of a serious pack rat, a compendium of odd informa [...]

    4. Interesting artist s book by a Frenchman who documented every item on the only table in his apartment, made a drawing and wrote a description of each piece, then gave the manuscript to his friends and visitors so they could comment Ensuing a discussion about much than just a hunk of bread with a bit taken out of it.

    5. Daniel Spoerri specializes in snare photography In this book he photographs his kitchen table and then dedicates a chapter of the book to each item on the table It is surprisingly fascinating, believe it or not.
