Summary

An artist's book. "Eidetics concerns the vivid arousal of recollections triggered unexpectedly during the course of normal living. Without elaborating on the science or the theory the headings, essays, fragments and poems in this volume present eidetic moments in their full richness, as they occur. The texts use interactions between the loves, friendships and places to evoke parallel eidetic recall in the reader. ... The images reinforce the continuum between birth, death and rebirth that eidetic consciousness suggests. [Colour, numbers, and slanting lines seem to impell the narative forward.] ... What is Eidetics? A book of poetry with its accompanying prose...; or a journal; or a diary; or a novella. Or? Why can't it be all of these? Remember a book made by artists is a huge embrace." -Adapted from the artists' statement.
