› Find signed collectible books: 'Humanophone'
Taking its title from a George Ives invention--an instrument made from a group of humans, each of whom sings a single note, arrayed like a xylophone--Humanophone would seem to be about music. But its real subject is the artist's creative dilemma: how one delivers a new idea (a musical composition, a poem) through existing media. With everything from kumquats to abandoned wedding pictures, Clara Bow to Bill Robinson, Keats's belle dame to Dante's Francesca, feng shui to a recipe for octopus, Humanophone celebrates how the body shapes art from the world it is given.
