First audiobooks and then portable reading devices. What ever happened to the original greatness of a written text – the art of finely adjusted characters, placed on natural pieces of paper?
As a retrogressive reaction to the technology development in the world today, I made these not-suitable-for-reading-on-the-bus booksters, where written words will remain written. They’ll not get digitialized and hidden away in some music-flipping-pod-slash-picture-showing-browsing-machine.
Instead, I took it back to where it all began. With characters old school printed on old school pieces of paper. And posteralized the whole shebang.
Try taking those 100x70 cm booksters on the bus and have a comfortable read. I dare you.
This is for those of you who have an iphone, you love it to bits and yet it hates you, its sole purpose it to make you seem stupid. I am forever sending mispelt texts thanks to my phone and I have illustrated some of my favourite and weirdest ones.
I finally got around to creating a document of my work from the brief permanence show. My work for the show was site specific so I wanted to collect together a record of what was shown. Images, text and the content from the books in a series of pamphlet sewn books.
