The Snowball


Artist's book documenting a collaborative project by Peter Bonde and Jason Rhodes executed March 8 - 13, 1999, which was executed as part of the 48th Venice Biennale; a commission from the Danish Contemporary Art Foundation for the Danish pavillion. Includes many photographs an interview with the artist and Marianne Øckenholt and Jérôme Sans. "In March 1999, Peter Bonde and Jason Rhoades set up -- and filmed -- a series of races with half scale NASCAR style car-racing on the Willow Springs 'Paved Oval' Track, in the desert north of Los Angeles. The event established what was called, 'racing forms,' in which other artists, critics, curators, filmmakers along with sponsors of the project and innocent bystanders were encouraged to participate in an ongoing discussion using wireless telecommunication while driving the cars." -- from book's end-flap.
