Pictured above is the complete Eleven Clouds. A confession: throughout the course of the project, even as limited as each release was, one copy was held back for the archive” . Said archive is pictured above. This was done with the intention that this archive would end up in the hands of a single individual, so there would be one person, beyond the artist, with all of the releases” . It has been decided that the complete”  Eleven Clouds Archive will be sent to a randomly selected individual who has inquired after the final Eleven Clouds release …and yet. That release, as stated in the press release, is available to any who ask and from that list a single person shall be selected to receive not only …and yet but the entire Eleven Clouds Archive“¡ .

As of the writing of this post there are still copies of …and yet available. So strike while the iron is hot! However all people who inquire after this release, including those that exceed the number of available copies will be entered in the drawing for the complete archive. So there is absolutely no reason not to take the plunge. This offer is open to anyone worldwide with no restrictions including previous recipients of other Eleven Clouds releases“¡ .

”  Caveats
1) Of course there is only one real copy of 100 Black Clouds, a unique puzzle box filled with undisclosed objects. However this archive includes the music, presented in the same four disc format of the original release. It has been housed in a vinyl pocket with a photo of the original release
2) Likewise 47° 32′ 25.80″ N / 121° 54′ 32.0″ W really only exists as a micro-cassette buried on a riverbank (perhaps) in the Cascade Foothills. In this case the archive contains the simultaneous recording that was made with a voice recorder. Again a custom sleeve was generated with the promotional artwork.
3) The pictured Vertical Landscape is not the one included in the archive. The archive version is Vertical Landscapes 1 which had been wrapped up securely in brown paper for its journey to the east and was not unwrapped for this photo.

“¡ Additional Caveats
A list has been kept of who has received which release for the entire project. If the winner of the archive has previously acquired Eleven Clouds releases said releases will be excluded from the archive as sent to them. These releases will be randomly sent to other recipients of …and yet who of course also do not already own said release.

How to acquire a copy
100 Black Kites is a unique object of which only one (1) exists and thus is available for only one (1) individual. This single copy will be sent out, at the artists expense, to the individual who best expresses why they should be the one to receive it. You may send your arguments to the below email address, making sure to include where you’d like the box sent if your argument proves the most persuasive. If one prefers to keep one’s mailing address exclusive unless one wins that is also acceptable – we shall simply reply to your email with notification that you have been selected upon which you may inform us of where to send the goods. There is no deadline for this, the box will be sent out once the artist is convinced to do so and not before. That is to say he will not just pick from amongst the entries received at a specific time, but will wait for the most compelling regardless of how long that takes. Note that essays aren’t required; a single sentence, if compelling enough, could suffice. That being said timeliness in sending your entry is recommended.
