Since the mid-1960s, On Kawara (b. 1933) has objectively recorded his existence through everyday numbers, words, and found images. This handsomely designed and illustrated book presents works selected by the artist from throughout his illustrious career, including paintings made at the time of the 1969 moon landings, other large-scale paintings, a 100 Years Calendar, and a vast array of his own books that chronicle his extensive travels, acquaintances, and personal readings. The book features a translation of an essay on the Apollo space mission and its impact on human consciousness by Takafumi Matsui; a chapter from Ervin Laszlo's The Whispering Pond, which presents theories of understanding possible connections between mind and matter; and a new essay by Charles Wylie that discusses the specifics of Kawara's corresponding installation at the Dallas Museum of Art and Kawaras contribution to and divergence from the main currents of art practice in the past five decades.

Charles Wylie is The Lupe Murchison Curator of Contemporary Art, Dallas Museum of Art, and author of Robert Ryman and Sigmar Polke: History of Everything, published by Yale University Press. Ervin Laszlo is the author or editor of many books in philosophy and systems sciences. Takafumi Matsui is a professor in the department of complexity science and engineering at The University of Tokyo.
