Obsolete Body: Suspensions is a now rare and out of print book documenting the Australian performance artist Stelarc's suspensions of the late 1970's and early 1980's. Originally released in January of 1984 as both a hard and soft cover, it is a beautifully presented book with essays on both the author and his work and large black and white photographs.

Containing photographs taken in both stark inside environments and ethereal outside surroundings, the suspensions presented are inspiring and beautiful.
