Abstract (English)

In two dense articles concerning the work of conceptual photographer Arden and his piece "West" respectively, Wood argues a brilliant series of ideas ranging from Foucault's definition of "archive" to notions of potlatch/gifting, connotations of copper as a material and mythologies of the West and the new world. Both the works and the writing afford a complex and discerning reading of the West portrayed by Arden. Biographical notes. 13 bibl. ref.
