Much Less than Useless

Federico Cavallini

2017

"Much less than Useless" is a visual narrative where linearity slowly gets lost as you leaf through its pages. A voyage of images to be experienced as a visual drift through unfinished or incomplete works that are always mutating. This is a book that reconstructs a creative process and an artistic methodology that is hard to trace back to the final work of art. The absence of all the reassuring elements when dealing with a book, such as introductions, captions, explanations, leaves space for an organic and individual reading, where each one of us finds his/her own cognitive route, (re)organising information from one moment to the other, decoding the endless details contained.
