"Due to the unusual ephemeral nature of most of Whitman's oeuvre, relatively little of it is easily accessible to us today; 'Playback' has therefore involved the artist extensively in restoring and reconstructing works. The exhibition and the book are the product of a six-year effort, some of it nearly archaeological, to rehabilitate aged film and outdated equipment into an exhibitable form as the artist intended it." This book comes with a DVD including 'The American Moon', 'Flower', 'Prune Flat', and an interview with the artist as well as commentary on the films.
