Reference noteColophon: 'The image content was appropriated from scenes off the internet. The images were then changed and printed so as to allow the ink to blur on the metallic paper. The book was glue-bound with reversible glue. The small shapes on the cover represent one sperm and egg cell and the threads represent the real distance between participants entering the internet in real time - real space. The cover is disjointed to show the flexibility of content accessed over internet. The end pages were hand marbled by the artist and represent the organic and connected nature of things. The photograph on the page was taken in Ibiza and shows the naked model entwined in metallic tape in a grid-tiled pool - symbolic of the internet process. The image of one person holding another up (blurred) was photographed by the artist.'

Bound in full black leather which is flexible at the middle on front and back covers.

The 'title' is taken from the first page where the artist warns of entering the site.
