I undertook the English language copy editing for artist Alona Rodeh’s Safe and Sound: The Third Dimension, a publication “of an inherently hybrid nature”. Published
on the occasion of Architecture of the Nights at Erlangen’s Kunstpalais – Rodeh’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany – it functions as an exhibition catalogue while at the same time it constitutes the third issue of Rodeh’s ongoing series of magazine-like, research based artist publications titled Safe and Sound. The catalogue features re-published historical texts illustrated by archive images, advertisements and scientific illustrations, as well as newly commissioned contributions about the use of light and sound systems in nightclubs and the blackouts in Europe during World War II. A visual essay by Rodeh traces the evolution of bollards in urban space over the course of more than five centuries.
