Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations, Gregory Eddi Jones (2014)
Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations is a new media artist book that blends notions of surveillance, crime photography, advertising and found text. Together these elements form a dark and incisive commentary on an American culture that embraces violent spectacle - real and imagined - as a commercial product.
Fifty-one years after the publication of Ed Ruscha’s iconic artist book, Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations examines how the American Identity has shifted from the idyllic media messages and car culture of the 1950s and 60s to the coarse post 9/11 age we occupy today.
