Special Communiqués is made up of text and 38 images shot on Polaroid SX-70 film. About half of the images were altered with acrylic paint. The rest are straight photographs. This photo-novella was done during the summer of 1980, less than a year after the completion of Eddie Glove. Special Communiqués centers on a prisoner in solitary confinement and his strange daily life. This work is related to the artist's video of 1981, Communiqués for Tape.
