    Inductive Probability is a retrospective book of artworks by Paul Gregg, published to coincide with his exhibition of the same name.

It also includes short contribtions by Oliver Dowling, Tony Sheehan, Garrett Phelan, Prof. Peter Matter and Robert Mathys.

    From the Press Release:

    Paul Gregg’s work has occurred fleetingly, and been installed permanently in cities and towns throughout Ireland, Europe and the United States. This retrospective cannot retrieve the artist’s original installations. Instead, it represents his practice through tests, documentation, and technically unsparing assemblies. For instance, Inductive Probability includes a decommissioned rocket, photographs lit by explosions from magnesium mortar charges, and a model for a glass planet Earth. The exhibition covers twenty years’ worth of Paul Gregg’s perennially sited machines.
