Room Behavior

by Rob Kovitz
Paperback
Publication Date: 01/11/2013
  $38.54
A woman sits alone in a darkened boiler-room. A man enjoys hanging suspended from the ceiling. A dirty room indicates the secret sexual proclivities of its occupant. A curtain rustling in the breeze portends fear and paranoia. "The purpose of a room derives from the special nature of a room. A room is inside. This is what people in rooms have to agree on, as differentiated from lawns, meadows, fields, orchards." Room Behavior is a book about rooms. Composed of texts and images from the most varied sources - including crime novels, decorating manuals, anthropological studies, performance art, crime scene photos, literature and the Bible, to name a few - Kovitz shapes the material through a process of highly subjective editing, ordering and juxtaposition to create an original, fascinating and darkly funny rumination about the behavior of rooms and the people that they keep. "Like the rooms he depicts, the pages of this book are host to an evocative and thought-provoking life of their own." - Uptown Magazine "Strange and clever." - Globe & Mail "The book is a unique mini-coffee table paperback, beautifully designed...Much more than a 'gift' book, Room Behavior is something to pause and reflect on whenever you think about rearranging your furniture.
" - Fast Forward "This is a book to keep, to review again and again. Funny, but deep." - Umbrella Treyf 25th Anniversary edition.
