An interpretive look at how books can be used to tell a story.
As a rule, when you have read a book and closed the cover, you can expect to find that the story is the same every subsequent time you open it. The words will not have changed. There is order and structure inherent in the experience of reading a book.
In this project, however, we have changed the rules a bit. We have attempted to stretch
the boundaries of the classic reading experience by creating a stage upon which the words can change on each viewing.
There is a technique employed by many writers called free-writing. It is very useful for generating ideas, getting rid of blocks and freeing your creative mind.
Using a hollowed out book and 20 dice with words/short phrases pasted on them, our system is a nod to the that technique. And of course you can add and remove words/phrases/die as you see fit.
