Book Description

Deadhead tells the visually arresting story of an ambitious sculptural project by the Bomfords that leads the reader through phases of early research, studio production, installation, life on the water, and final deconstruction. Mounted to a barge and towed to different locations during the summer of 2014, this large-scale installation acted as a curious marine outpost asserting a presence that both troubled and delighted. Photographs by Cedric Bomford, Nathan Bomford, Barbara Cole, Maegan Hill-Carroll, Michael Love, Philip Nee Nee, David Peters, Bob Ross, Rachel Topham, and Karen Zalamea.
