Direct Language 5.1

- Direct language
- Original format
The originating text is Stéphane Mallarmé’s Un Coup de Dés (1897), a poem famous for its purposeful use of blank space and careful placement of words on the page, which allows multiple non-linear readings. This particular reading employs the progressive multi-screen function common to domestic camcorders in a real-time improvised animation, which through spatial and temporal transformation accelerates fragmentation and obfuscation, repurposing the original text as a video concrete pattern poem.
