Don't Art, Fashion, Music : Chicks on Speed
by Melissa Logan and Alex Murray-Leslie and Judith Winter




Overview -
This highly innovative and original book documents the dynamic art group Chicks on Speed's recent Objeckt Instruments project and 2010 exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts. Chicks on Speed (COS) are an ever-changing multidisciplinary art group who apply a punk-inspired DIY ethic to explore the boundaries of art, craft, fashion, and music. This latest endeavor is the result of collaborations between international artists, scientists, and designers, including Turner Prize-winner Douglas Gordon. These artistic dialogues, technical innovations, and craft experiments have produced fantastical creations, including a high-heeled shoe guitar worn by Lady Gaga, a cigar-box orchestra, and a theremin tapestry, all documented in lush color--from developmental inception to public display. The book includes an introduction by Judith Winter and a revealing conversation with Chicks on Speed about their art and process.
