Juan Echeverry, Dead End, Bogota, Columbia, 2016

I'm not quite sure what is happening in this 'endless loop' of an accordion, but it seems there are two dialogues between represented here — one in black ink and the other in green. Either way there's a slightly creepy quality to the things that this man sees and imagines as he walks down the street. Not for the faint of heart from this artist from Columbia!

On a technical note, I'm not even sure that this book meets the definition of an accordion, but its very close, at a minimum an 'expanded book'.

14 pages, one-sided, individual 4.25" (h) x 4.5" (w), when fully extended 34".
