Susanna Browne’s A Perfect Day is a document of the artist’s project for Unit/Pitt’s 2013 series What Future. The early-20th-century parlour song A Perfect Day was transmitted into space, using facilities provided by a satellite communications company, on February 17, 2013. The piece itself will persist until the signal eventually becomes undetectably faint, a vast distance and great span of time away. In the meantime, this document, which includes Susanna Browne’s rendition of the song on audio CD, provides a means to experience the work vicariously, without resorting to extraplanetary travel.
One volume bound in chipboard covers, 5.25×5″, 76pp, with audio CD
