“The book is intended for people interested in policy, not for people focused on art. 

In my experience, sellin a visual product to mass media in normal news, i.e., policy marker, takes about 5 minutes. Selling the same ideas or images in the art world taked 5 decades.

The main reason I entered art, to have it lead us towards wilderness models of economic land use, as prefigured by Beuys as Chief of the Hunters, by earth art, and by color video language, and body artists liks Schneeman and Edelson, has not yet been even exhibited. Such a thesis, although recommended to outlets like Artists Space by Jenny Holzer and other colleagues, has always been rejected by curators and critics as too strange. Even if scientifically correct.

So, the art world has become retrograde. The fate of this book is unknown today.”
