I Drive You Crazy, to the Moon Bruce Connew
2007 — 2016


Artist book, to be published by Vapour Momenta Books, the pocket-sized publishing arm of Bruce Connew and Catherine Griffiths


‘I Drive You Crazy, to the Moon’, a series of images made during 2007, is the third volume in a social and political trilogy of artist books: ‘I Saw You’, 2007; ‘I Must Behave’, 2009; ‘I Drive You Crazy, to the Moon’, 2016.

‘I Drive You Crazy, to the Moon’, is a private, political journey to oil, and “... grapples more abstractly with the geo-political implications of capitalist frameworks.” says Dr Barbara Garrie.

As a counterpoint to that immorality, and to underline the lyrical beauty and sometimes creepiness of the moving light, Connew added music notation to the smaller, repeated images of the series, which have been placed according to the notes of the opening bars of each of the seven movements of Beethoven’s Late String Quartet #14 Opus 131, a piece of music that is humanity itself.
