Crickets is a collaboration between Californian artist Mungo Thomson (born 1969) and composer Michael Webster (born 1966), for which field recordings of crickets from around the world were transcribed into a musical score, including parts for violin, flute, clarinet and percussion. This publication documents their project.

Mungo Thomson (born 1969) is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work explores mass culture and cosmology. Thomsonís work addresses the small, everyday voids that exist within culture--the gaps, digressions and mistakes that are an inevitable part of institutions and everyday life. The artistís first catalogue overview, Time People Money Crickets consists of a selection of nine works in a range of media including film, video, artistís books and installations. The publication is inspired by 1960s popular science compendiums.

What do black holes, distant galaxies, solar systems, nebulae and supernovas look like when seen in the negative, suddenly devoid of the color black? Mesmerizing, abstract, strangely familiar and yet hauntingly strange. This artist's book collects a group of images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, which the artist also uses in an ongoing series of photographic murals which can be custom-sized for walls and architectural spaces and installed as wallpaper. The four-color images are in fact inverted photographs of outer space made by the Hubble Space Telescope. Conceived by the artist in collaboration with designer Connie Purtil, it is part of a series edited by Christoph Keller. It was launched at the 2006 Art Basel Miami.
