Over the past 15 years, Argianas has become known for making work in-between media, ranging from musical compositions which form encoded physical objects or vice versa, orchestrated performances and installation to representational painting. This book presents an overview of his rich body of work thus far.

Alongside a generous range of illustrations, essays by three leading critics each highlight a different perspective on the artist’s work. Quinn Latimer taps into the use of language in all its varied forms within Argianas’s art, and the sonic formalities of his work; Jennifer Kabat anchors her essay in swimming, direct experience, memory and affect; and Dan Fox, from whose essay the book’s title is drawn, uses the format of fiction, animating the artworks through a back-and-forth historical and spatial time-travel, in a manner sympathetic to Argianas’s purposeful use of period style.

The book concludes with an edited conversation between the artist and the critic Martin Herbert, which provides insights into the methodology and intuition informing Argianas’s diverse practice, as well as its political and ethical underpinnings.
