Scope and content
Series contains 86 collages created during Coupland’s book tours from the 1990s to 2009. Collages were created in order to include a visual dimension to Coupland’s daily tour diary entries that were published to his website. Upon creation the collages were mailed to Vancouver, BC were they were then scanned and posted to Coupland’s blog with the accompanying 400-500 word entry.
Coupland describes the collages as embodying both high-tech and low-tech aspects of the early 2000s due to the nature of their creation, transportation and dissemination.
Subsequent exhibition of the collages featured floating the pieces in vitrines (glass paneled-display cabinets) with a ½ inch neutral background while nearby computers displayed the corresponding diary entries. Graphic moments from the collages were made into limited prints and sold at the show venues.
Immediate source of acquisition
