intervals and forms of stones of stars investigates a Nordic man-made beach landscape. Located near Copenhagen, Køge Bay Beach Park is a 7-kilometer-long recreational area reclaimed from the sea. While highly planned and regulated, the idea was to create a landscape that looked like wild nature. The book is a reflection of this anthropocene biotope, its botany, and its cultural context. Through a series of cameraless photographic registrations, Buhl maps the biotope’s flora, fauna, and particles and draws connections between the characteristics of the site and its photographic representation. Her photographs are inspired by the cameraless photographic works of W. H. Fox Talbot (1840s) and A. Strindberg (1890s); images created without a photographic lens, only by use of light and light sensitive surfaces. In the photographs, dust particles resemble the night sky and the wings of an insect look like a topographical map. The book contains the series of full-page photographs as well as a text of field notes and two conversations, with N. Bubandt, Professor of Anthropology, Aarhus University and with L. Gallun, Assistant Curator of Photography at MoMA, New York.

Nanna Debois Buhl is a visual artist who lives and works in Copenhagen and New York. She participated in The Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program, New York (2008-09), and received her MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2006). Her practice is a continuous investigation of historical and cultural knowledge through botany, animal life, imagery, and architecture. Her work has been exhibited at institutions such as the Pérez Art Museum, Florida; SculptureCenter, New York; Art in General, New York; The Studio Museum, Harlem, New York; MSU Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb; Lunds Konsthall, Sweden; ARKEN Museum of Modern Art; Kunsthal Charlottenborg; Kunsthallen Brandts; Museum for Contemporaty Art, Roskilde; and Herning Museum of Contemporary Art, Denmark.

T9 Numerology. Moritz Greiner-Petter._motto books_2017_1

 

T9 (short for ›text on 9 keys‹) is a predictive text technology developed in 1995. It was designed to optimize text entry on 3×4 numeric cell phone keypads commonly used at that time. On these standard 12-key layouts the number keys from ›2‹ to ›9‹ are assigned to a group of three to four letters each. In T9, a sequence of single keystrokes is matched against a stored dictionary. Words associated to the entered sequence of numbers are then presented to the user to choose from. Coincidentally and inherent to the working principle of T9, one sequence of keystrokes can potentially represent many different words. This guide book compiles an incomplete and subjective selection of these so-called ›textonyms‹ to be found in the English language. It exposes the collateral poetry, incidental truisms, and semantic comedy that are latently lurking in encoding and compression technologies like T9.

Uncompromising collection of found images and original work from Felicia Atkinson, composing a rasterized visual score. Audio Book could be a radio program without sound, but it’s a travel guide for a destination that doesn’t exist. It’s a take-away environment. It’s a deep looking into the palimpsests of a landscape.
It gathers two hundred images, some are found materials some are originals. Some images are words. Each of those images contains a grain, a noise, a distortion, a blur, a change of frequency.
The book is the territory. The pages are the knitters of a strange kind of duration.
In the book there is no need for frontiers and passeports, language is a river to cross or to swim in. We are all foreigners of something. There are only derives and situations. The book travels for you, circulates, is exchanged, stolen, given or lost.
