A Century in Life

This hand-made book explores the history of one building through an entire century. The images are recognizable, yet blurred and abstracted enough so that they are non-biased and inpersonal. The format of the book is not linear: one can interchange pages at will, layering them in different orders (all pages are translucent, allowing one to see several layers at once) in order to play and rearrange history and narratives. In conjunction to the images, this book contains several loos pieces of papers with fragments of

 

narrative—ranging form heartfelt to tragic—that can be combined with the imagery in order to re-shuffle history and create an innumerable amount of possible narrative combinations. This project questions relativity, personal narratives in relation to a space, as well as the notion of history being recorded via artifacts, photographs and images.
