This book documents Jonathan Monk’s exhibition at the ICA, held in 2005. Continuous Project Altered Daily offered an overview of Monk’s practice from 1993–2005, including over 60 artworks. In the lower galleries, an archive of all of Monk’s work was on display, and in the upper galleries the exhibition changed every day, with each piece moving downstairs to the archive section once its day was up.

The identity we designed for the exhibition included archival elements, from silkscreen-printed posters to the labelling system and daily diary on the walls, which echoed the curatorial approach to the show. The layout of the catalogue also reflects this influence. The label affixed to the cover is a caption from the exhibition; there are two versions, one from each of the only two artworks to remain in the exhibition for its duration.
