Included in the book are the full texts ofThe Crab WalksandCrab Steps Asideby Phil Smith,Mourning Walkby Carl Lavery, andTreeby Deirdre Heddon, each accompanied by photographs and contextual essays. Taken together or separately, the work of all three artist-scholars raises important issues about memory, the ethics of autobiographical performance, ritual, life writing, and site-specific performance.
