Falling
This book begins in zero gravity and ends underneath the surface of the earth. In between, figures are falling as we hear something about philosophy, laughter, architecture and war. With writing and drawing coursing through its pages, Falling gathers momentum and, through this, a picture emerges: it looks something like today. Of the book, renowned Canadian poet Lisa Robertson says: "Falling is a work of natural philosophy, about wirewalkers and moonwalkers, elevators, angels, slapstick, skyscrapers, swerves, and the dynamic figure that links them. Here Kreider + O’Leary describe “the beautiful mess we’re in” with a speculative precision which greets the collaborative anti-tradition of Gins + Arakawa, Koolhaas and Mau, or Bernard Cache. Their description of falling, in its uncoupling of the tyranny of cause and effect, displaces the now-prevalent despondency of end-thinking with a prolific joyousness."
