Summary of Project:

Novella is a photographic story. A translation of Kurt Tucholsky’s Schloß Gripsholm, not a translation form German to English, but rather a translation from one visual code to another. Linguistic signs are replaced by photographic signs. Through this process the narrative is freed from the linear constraints of written language and becomes image and object. A book-object which installed is no longer an individual book or story but a signifier of the Paperback Novel.
