Poetry collection (in English); 64 copies (32p.) Self published - Graphic design: M. Musteikyte & D. Verweij
The graphic design of Arietta borrows elements from early programming languages & punched cards. The body of the book has been pierced with 16 holes (from cover to back cover), a feature that balances out the attention from text to object.
Arietta has been designed with an 8-step logic with the intention to serve as a future blueprint for new infrastructures beyond the printed page. The body of Arietta is 32 pages long with every page consisting of 2 separate paragraphs of 8 verses each. The 2 paragraphs interact with each other using a dual numbering sequence that prompts the reader to explore an augmented reading potential.
The book is an exercise in artificial thought & moreover a wager: When does writing become a post-sensual process? When does a post-sensual process become writing?
