    The first of two books published alongside Strau's Renaissance Society exhibition, The New World, Application for Turtle Island, this imagines itself as a more personal petition for immigrant status in lieu of formal legal paperwork.

    Text has often played a role in Strau’s previous sculptural and installation-based work; however, here his writings for the first time take the form of an independent book (described by him as “a kind of treasure island adventure novel”) that serves a structuring function, determining the production and selection of objects on view in the exhibition.
