30 Seconds off an Inch

30 Seconds off an Inch is the accompanying catalogue for the major international multimedia exhibition of the same name in 2010.

This exhibition brought together the work of forty-two artists, ranging in age from twenty-five to seventy-two, all of whom challenge ideas of what art can be.  Rather than employing traditional art materials, these artists made use of objects found in everyday life, including hair, rocks, refuse and clothing. Often unpolished, the work in 30 Seconds collages together different media, blurring distinctions between painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance and installation.
