The title comes from a Pittsburgh building where mattresses had been made at the turn of the 20th century. In 1975 the buildng came alive and in 1977 artists rented studios .The exhbitions came in 1982 titled Factory Installations and eventually met with Performance Art as well. The book has much info on the artists and there is an abundance of photographs printed on quality coated paper.I loved this book at first sight-- first, because I had no idea what it was about and secondly, because it's not only contemporary art, but a chance to expolore the artists thoughts.
