An artist's book composed with watercolour, graphite pencil, and stamping. It "...reflects on Australian electoral system, which makes a parliament accountable to the people. Small watercolour marks represent a vote for one of three parties. Each vote has been meticulously numbered in graphite pencil. The votes accumulate as the reader proceeds through the book, until the total number is determined for each party and translated into seats in parliament. Each book in the edition has a slightly different outcome."--Lessons in History, vol. II, Democracy, 2012, p. 23.
Variable limited edition of 5 copies.
