"When he was working on Thirtyfour Parking Lots, Ruscha commissioned aerial photographer Art Alanis to take the photographs and told him to shoot all the empty lots he came across. As to why he wanted images of such phenomena, the artist has said that at the time he liked to think of his bookwork as coming out of specific missions; each of his books reflects a narrow point of view: 'Small Fires came at a time when I needed to come inside. It's my only interior book. The rest are all exteriors, with the exception of Records, which is neuter. Pools came when I was swimming every day and Parking Lots when I felt like being aerial.' While the images in Thirtyfour parking lots are striking, especially those lots with herringbone patterning, Ruscha found even more to interest him in the photographs' unexpected visual features, such as the oil droppings on the ground revealed by photographing the lots without cars."

Artists' book. Black and white. Wrappers. Perfect bound. First edition of 3560 copies. Very good condition. 7 x 5". Unpaginated. 120 pages. "Photographs in this book were taken by Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, and Susan Haller. The characters were played by Shelley Chamberlain, Suzanne Chandler, and Susan Haller." "In 1978, six years after Colored People, Ruscha made one more book, Hard Light . . ., a collaboration with Lawrence Weiner. Hard Light, along with each of Ruscha's other collaborative works--Royal Toad Test, Business Cards, and Crackers--is a narrative book, unlike any of the solo books. Royal Road Test was a deadpan, fake forensic story, Business Cards was the story of an exchange of graphics, and both Crackers and Hard Light were effectively photo-novels. Another parallel between the last two is that each has one line of dialogue, placed about three-quarters of the way through the photos, but no other text in the body of the book--in its way a Ruschaian device. . . In Hard Light the one line in more than one hundred pages of photos is: 'In the year 2000 all racecar driving will be taken over by women.'" Reference: p. 57 LAWRENCE WEINER BOOKS 1968-1989.
