« This past Spring, and half the Summer, the iPhone became my studio. I signed up for Instagram. I pushed things aside. I made room. It was easy. I ignored Tumbler, and Facebook had never interested me. But Instagram… »

Richard Prince, Bird Talk,

Back in 2015 Richard Prince 1234 instagram account was a new daily dope. Richard Prince had just shown his « New Portraits series » at Gagosian New-York and he had started his new account Richard Prince 1234 on instagram. As its content was ephemeral, I was missing all of his posts, so i got this idea of setting up some automatic recordings. Two years passed away then the account shut down. I suddenly realized I had recorded an historical concert, a « free concert » played by Richard Prince himself. Time has come for an analog conversion and restitution of these 2 years of recordings : 2664 posts gathered into 12 chronological books of 48 pages, each one housed in a record sleeve.
