Artist Marcus Coates has worked with outpatients at St. John's Hospice, London, since 2009, as part of the Serpentine Gallery's project Skills Exchange: Urban Transformation and the Politics of Care. Wondering about the skills an artist could offer people in the final stages of their lives, Coates began his project asking the question, 'What can I do for you?'

Answers to this question generated a series of proposals, one of which - made by Alex H. - asked the artist to undertake a journey to the Amazon Rainforest.

Published by Koenig Books and the Serpentine Gallery, this book contains the transcript of the artist's latest work, The Trip (2010).
