What does it mean to be documented or undocumented? How do these terms work across borders and boundaries, languages and nations? These are the questions fueling the experimental artwork-in-a-box, Documentado/Undocumented, a book art piece that explores the intersection of printmaking, typography, performance, video, sound art, and installation. In its traveling exhibition, a finely crafted aluminum traveling case is on display, opening into a tri-partite mirrored vanity containing a playful kit of objects, inviting the participant into an intimate space of engagement and transformation. Illuminated buttons trigger layers of audio, and a set of instructions invites the viewer to Reimagine yourself / tell anew story / collaborate with others." Also on display is an exquisite, vividly illustrated codex created by book artist Felicia Rice, with texts drawing upon Mexican performance artist Guillermo Gomez-Pena's experiences and observations of the political, geographic, social, and psychological boundaries between the United States and Mexico. A video loop of Gomez-Pena performing various ritual acts is projected onto the gallery walls.

Doc/Undoc presents this multi-media, multi-disciplinary artists' collaboration in book form, documenting a unique and wildly ambitious adventure into the experimental realms of modern book arts. Included are a lush, photographic recreation of the installation, a reproduction of the codex, an essay by art historianJennifer A. Gonzalezwho situates the project in the context of bookmaking, performance art, and cabinets of curiosities. An introductory essay byFelicia Rice tells the story of the collaboration: its genesis, development, execution, and its ongoing intention. In addition, the book is packaged with a USB drive containing the installation version's original sound art byZachary James Watkins and video art byGustavo Vazquez.

"Felicia Rice is one of the most exemplary book artists in the United States. Her collaborations with Guillermo Gomez-Pena and Enrique Chagoya have transcended every tradition and formal expectation that we have concerning the book as a work of art. Her new collaboration with Gomez-Pena, Doc/Undoc, is a brilliant exposition of the best of two worlds-art and political action."-Peter Rutledge Koch, The Codex Foundation

"The bleeding flaming heart of this book is a cornucopia of shamanic defenses against racism. It's a magical toolbox filled with implements to use for safe border crossings, a prayerbook for the deconstruction of oppressive stereotypes, and a guide for the creation of liberated identities and revolutionary entities. This is not a book to be just read, it's a book to be performed, enacted and realized."-Marshall Weber, Artist/Curator at Booklyn

"A fierce and salient cultural intervention, with myriad possibilities. Wild mind shamanic Gomez-Pena imprints his masterful, timeless persona here, as do other collaborators, and book artist Felicia Rice provides a powerful container - a microcosm/macrocosm for immigrant experience. Tactile, visual, expansive, explosive." - Anne Waldman, poet, author of Voice's Daughter of a Heart Yet To Be Born

"An interactive experience that ignites dialogues, performances and workshops addressing race and identity across generations. When installed in our gallery, alongside Guillermo Gomez-Pena's video performance, the collaborative book came alive fully deployed in serpentine fashion offering innovative insight into complex issues."-Shelby Graham, Director/Curator Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery at UC Santa Cruz
