Jenny Holzer’s first ever artists book Diagrams features a collection of diagrams from many sources, primarily physics textbooks, which the artist copied in precise free-hand along with their corresponding captions. These appropriated diagrams are studies of representations of larger-than-life ideas, such as time and space. Eventually Holzer would become fascinated with the captions alone, declarative, factual statements similar to the biting aphorisms comprising the artist’s Truisms series.--Printedmatter.org
