distracted-reader #3: Time to Think Like a Mountain by Louise Menzies with Allan Smith. Published by split/fountain. Combining magazine fragments, archival images, interviews, collages and newly commissioned texts, ‘Time to Think Like a Mountain’ documents New Zealand-based artist Louise Menzies’ distracted meanderings through one of the largest collections of underground and self-published material in the United States. Drawing directly on content from the Alternative Press Collection at the University of Connecticut, where she was artist in residence during 2014, this third issue of ‘distracted-reader’ continues Menzies’ attention to the printed world of the historical fringe.
