“Chance and chance alone has a message for us. Everything that occurs out of necessity, everything expected, repeated day in and day out, is mute. Only chance can speak to us.” — Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness Of Being
A book is traditionally a complete object in a linear sequence, but is comprised of material of endless recombinant potential. How can we change our experience with a text in order to understand its infinite possibilities, to view text as texture, a line as physical, and a book as generative rather than singular?
Physically dismantling a text provides the material for a new kind of poetry – one that is infinitely mutable and physically present . Text constructs a landscape and words are navigable through physical movement, each reading dependent on the path taken.
