A Fieldguide: publication

A Field Guide, book (44 pages, 100 pieces, signed and dated), Stichting KiK, Kolderveen, 2008/09.

Linking a city’s locations (using GPS-coordinates) to applicable genres and styles.

A translation of the city of Meppel to a book. Meppel was explored with a GPS device handy to register the exact GPS coordinates for every reference made from the book to the city and vice versa. This setup delivered the stage and investigatory framework for developing the publication. The story of the book was formed by using language in an abstract way, based on deformations of genre, styles and other textual structures as found in Meppel.

The eventual process of this study led to:
– A publication
– a text installation in the basement Dairy factory of the KIK foundation
