Environmental Communications 1976
By Anne Maile.
Environmental Communications began as a multi-disciplinary, multi-media group in early summer 1969. Its members began to photograph the surrounding cultural ephemera of California, revelling in the intoxicating eclecticism of 20th century imagery.
They soon produced collections of pictures encompassing architecture, art and design, environment and history. Here was the contemporary high-rises of West Hollywood alongside the sculptural work of Richard Serra, neon billboard advertising, Mayan architecture and woven textiles.
Originally provided to universities and public libraries, this 1976 catalogue offered these images for purchase by the general public for the first time. Containing over 275 colour images, Environmental Communications conglomerates the very best of American visual culture towards delightfully overwhelming ends.
