Full colour catalogue with essays by Dr Nima Poovaya Smith senior curator Bradford City Art Gallery; Dr Susan Lambert senior curator prints and drawings and painting at the Victoria and Albert Museum London; reprint of essay by Dr Rinder curator of contemporary art at University Museum and Art Gallery Berkeley; interview with Peter Davies and introduction by Terry Bennet Curator Tullie House Museum.

What you see in Transient is a spiral of all kinds of shoes, coloured with red glitter, stranger ceramic land-mines with pictures of Wordsworth's daffodils and willow pattern on them, coconut matting welcome mates, industrial door-mats with inlaid rubber graphics, and two beautiful black woollen carpets with exotic designs set down in parallel the form of an 'equals' sign. All of them would have originally been items destined for use; to be worn out, cast away, replaced, superceded; transient. 'Made somewhere else by somebody else for somebody else'.
