As one of the leading commentators on, and contributors to, the artistic and creative subculture of recent years, Creation Books are proud to present a tribute to the life and work of Simon Dwyer (1959 - 1997): the founder, editor and chief writer of the world-renowned counter-culture journal, Rapid Eye.
During the early nineties, Dwyer's various writings were crystallised in three highly acclaimed deluxe volumes. Now, the very best of these interviews, features and essays have been distilled into one single-volume: Rapid Eye Movement.
With a brand new forward by Genesis P-Orridge, Rapid Eye Movement reveals the progressive writing and creative foresight of Simon Dwyer, and provides a fascinating insight into the works and ideas of numerous avant-garde artists, musicians and film directors, including Psychic TV, Derek Jarman, and Gilbert & George: "Simon was a magic man. We loved him dearly and admired his beautiful and brilliant, 'Rapid Eyes'. His sexual, anarchic and life-full approach to our world was unique!" Rapid Eye Movement is published as Simon Dwyer's last testament to our troubled but stimulating times. [via]
