A book dedicated to the Net artist and performer is finally released! Visually mixed and laid out by Kidnap Your Designer, with numerous images of performative work or for the screens, the book also combines a fluid interview, Calmel’s alphabet of obsessions as seen by Jacques André, and five critical approaches – by Franck Bauchard, Hortense Gauthier, Laure Limongi, Antoine Pickels, and Hugues Warin. To celebrate all that, a drink with the colour of Calmel’s digital ink (red), and performed dedications.
