LIFE EXTREME
An illustrated guide to new life

For this artist's book Eduardo Kac has chosen to encounter philosopher Avital Ronell, who has gone beyond traditional philosophical themes to focus her thought on issues such as the telephone, drug addiction, television, tests, stupidity, and the greeting.
She is the author of Dictations; The Telephone Book; Crack Wars; Finitude's Score, The Test Drive.
Both Kac and Ronell provoke the emergence of new cultural practices.
They collaborate here on Life Extreme, at the crossroads between a natural history of human-created beings, alternative evolution, and the private lives of real but rarely-seen creatures. While the earliest documented living being in Life Extreme goes back to the 17th century, many others were first created in the XXIst century. United here for the first time, these unique plants and animals tell a different story about life on planet Earth.
Eduardo Kac is an artist who explores the poetic, philosophical and political dimensions of communication processes.
