Future Style of Rough Idea

tw061516_nextbook_01

Maybe an idea for the general look and feel of a future book (if only a very rough, very vague idea). In any case, no more 30-folio jobs. More like 10 max. That way more books can happen faster, instead of only one every other blue moon or so.

Artist’s Book: ‘VGR771’

winkler_book_vgr771_anim_05

It only took 17 months to finish (don’t ask). Anyway, the book formerly known as Murmur and currently known as VGR771 is at long last done. It’s a free download, but you have to print & bind it yourself. About 40 cartridges of ink oughta do it. And now it’s time for me to move on to other stuff.

Practice GIF

Solaris_Practice_01

Super lossy (which I don’t necessarily mind) with imperfect looping (I wanted it to feel like a circular trip, which I think I can do if I glue together the tunnels just right). Maybe someday I’ll get better at this. First, though, I have to finish the current book project, then immediately start on the next one (which’ll be shorter), on account of panic’s already set in about the quickness of the arrival of fall. Plus I’m reading Jane Eyre ’cause B. promised she’d read Iain M. Banks’s The Player of Games, which I’m scared she won’t like, but what if she does like it? I mean, I like Jane Eyre a lot already, so that’s something. Anyway, this clip is of course again from Solaris.

Nearly There

It took one 90-year-long year to get to this point, which is one step away from being done.

Finishing the sort-of final stage of laying out the folios for this book-like project, which is now called VGR771 for various reasons I’ll talk about later in a 300-page artist’s statement (except, not really). It’s still kind of a struggle to know what images oughta get paired up. But that’s part of the point, to the extent that there is a point. The folios could be bound in any number of ways and still work together. I have a little bit of a preferred order for the PDF, but I’m not imposing any sort of rules about how they get collated by the end-user. Not that many folks will print this thing…which is fine and also part of the point.

Faster Tarkovsky

Solaris_09

Pretty much exactly what it’s like driving in this town where we live now. Except the destination’s not a telepathic ghost planet. Except it sort of is. (From Solaris, 1972.)
