Poetics Country by Mike Kelley and Tony Oursler was published for documenta X in 1997.

“The documenta edition is a print in the manner of a standard American crosswalk sign graffittied with images taken from our notebooks. We are attracted to the sign because of its graphic style, a kind of international sign language which was much used in the late 70s “new wave” graphic design. The bullet holes place the sign within the local “aesthetic” of the Antelope Valley, an area that was the site of our shared rehearsal space.” – Mike Kelley and Tony Oursler
