The Inactivity Book is an activity book for adults that does not involve any activity. Using visuals and language typically found in children’s coloring and activity books, The Inactivity Book‘s directions are impossible to follow. Exploiting figures of speech, homophones, puns and wordplay, it addresses the porous nature of language and it’s slippery hold on meaning. Signed and numbered.
