I once dreamt about all the emails I received in my life interlacing into a two-dimensional mass, swallowing me instantly like a wave from Miller’s planet in Interstellar.
TMI, Too Much Information.
I decided to make a book about it; about information, conversation overflow and juxtaposition of texts.
The piece draws lyrics from O Superman
and From the Air
by Laurie Anderson
and juxtaposes them with the script from Maniac
, a Netflix Original show with a resembling theme.
The lyrics and the show both address issues of technology and communication with a wild and audacious approach, reveal the ethically problematic value behind the facade of progressive science.
This book is a hybrid of accordion fold and french fold. It could be read as a french fold book with black inner spreads, and to be unfolded like an accordion book.
↑ The cover of the book is made from gold mirror cut vinyl
↑ When folded, it is a drum-leaf bound book.
Readers can browse through the book page by page.
↑ When fully expanded, it is an accordion book with all pages laid out in front of the reader.
After making the print version of O Supermaniac, I wanted to push the project further by taking the content into digital space and explore more possibilities on pixels.
