Dracula V is a digital book containing a selection of photographs, press clippings, digital imagery and miscellaneous flat works accumulated by the artist, James Jarrett, in the five years between 2006-2011.
As well as being a variation on the artist book theme, Dracula V is also a reevaluation of Bram Stoker’s original novel Dracula (1897).The work, launched as a digital publication, attempts to develop the manifestation of the body of work beyond the seeming finality of the book format. The launch of Dracula V at New Gallery London started this process by substituting the physicality of the book for a projection of images and a QR code, which enabled visitors to download it onto a Smartphone.
