Environments for Controlling People: Best Practices


Categories: , Tag:


Limited edition artists’ book by Chicago artist Deb Sokolow. Risograph-printed edition of 400, published by Desert Island.

Deb Sokolow is a Chicago-based artist and writer whose text-driven, diagrammatic drawings and artist books blend fact with fiction and speculate both comically and critically on a variety of topics, including architecture, design, psychology, surveillance, shadowy histories, organizations, politics, the foibles of heads of state and the lives of geniuses.

Sokolow’s most recent work focuses on the idiosyncratic, humorous aspects of semi-fictitious architectural environments while hinting at the concealed agendas and social engineering involved in the design and use of existing corporate, institutional, domestic and entertainment spaces.
