Limited to only 24 copies, each set of this special art edition consists of an acid-free, lignin-free museum grade tape reel box measuring 11-3/8 x 11-3/8 x 7/8 inches with metal reinforced corners, with unique artwork applied directly to each box by Kristian Skylstad. The box is protected by a sleeve made from high-clarity, virgin polyethylene that has passed the Photo Activity Test as being safe for long-term storage.

Inside the box is an archival record envelope made from 10pt. thick, acid-free buffered folder stock, housing a lathe cut 10 inch clear polycarbonate plastic record without labels, manufactured by Peter King in New Zealand, with assistance from Antony Milton. It features a new composition by Maja S. K. Ratkje that is exclusive to this release and will not be reissued elsewhere ever.

Also included is a numbered and signed certificate designed by Bjørn Kjetil Johansen in Oslo and screen printed by Kjetil Brandsdal at Drid Machine in Stavanger. The record, sleeve and certificate are protected by a museum grade archival sleeve made from high-clarity mylar (polyester) that has passed the Photo Activity Test and has been approved by the Library of Congress as being safe for long-term storage.

Exhibited at Trafo Kunsthall in Asker Norway, October 25 – November 16, 2014.
