Klee Mutations is an André Masson-esque approach to post-digital bookmaking, with a performative mapping of German economics; the birth of sociology, and the six degrees of separation within avant-garde circles of the 20th century.
Klee Mutations was launched in 2018 at the Melbourne Art Book Fair. It has since been studied within the The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at University of Massachusetts Boston and made available for wider distribution.
