Concre t e Op er at ion a l An introduction Operation Concrete, at its core, is a collaborative media project. It brings together the aesthetic and audio qualities of art and music around the power of the written word to provide the viewer, listener, reader, with a complete experience. This immersive event is what Richard Galbraith considers as one possible future for the book. Richard is project lead and author of Concrete Operational, the novel that provides the content and themes for the artists and musicians. He believes the debate amongst the publishing industry regarding eBooks, eReaders, electronic ink, copyright, print on demand and everything else is secondary. Secondary to the true reasons for the written word, art and music: to explore the emotion that its creation derives. Its future is how we evolve and ensure these ideals take priority.

Operation Concrete hopes to do this, by providing us with the facility to explore some of the deepest human emotions; anger, desire, love, jealousy and madness across three mediums. We hope that, as you absorb the art, as you feel the music as you immerse yourself in the written word, you will find something that moves you, that helps you question life, and helps you move closer to finding a meaning behind it all. The collection is a limited run of 200 bespoke, hand made boxes that once are gone, are gone. There will be more made.
