Summary
"MacPhee draws on a seeming obsession white South Africans have with armed security, and threads that through a unique lens of both his experiences and science fiction. Security is an artist book processing the connections and disconnections between the United States and South Africa, in particular around issues of race and class. The book is composed of 14 pages of short texts drawn from MacPhee's travel notebooks, each text facing a page dominated by MacPhee's re-drawing of publicly posted security signs seen throughout South Africa"--Booklyn website
