dialog five: lådorna (the boxes)

Completed January 2022.

Two voices (UPPER CASE and lower case) wonder about the presence of an ultimate will and the purpose of their material existence on the pages. They discuss the distorted boxes that clutter the space where they exist. Are they the leftover of some failed project? To cheer things up they try to create a few rhymes.

dialog four
inbillningskraften (the faculty of imagination)

Completed October 2021.

Two voices (UPPER CASE and lower case) discuss how to move forward through the pages and make things happen. They suspect that the black tokens appearing on the pages are illusions and meant to make them move on. Are they being manipulated? Are they maybe inside someone’s brain?

Images show nine successive spreads from the book.

dialog three: fläckvis (stainwise)

Completed July 2021.

Two voices (UPPER CASE and lower case) learned from the previous dialogue that a conversation needs a factual theme. So they discuss the stains that keep appearing on the pages of the book. They try different ways of eliminating the intruders, but in the end they have to escape by abruptly closing the book.

dialog two: ack ack ack (oh dear)

Completed July 2021.

Two voices (UPPER CASE and lower case) lament the breakdown of a project and feel they have lost the meaning of saying lines. They discover a stain on the page and they try to make it the point of the conversation. But the project fails once more. On the last few pages I discuss what I wanted to achieve in this book, but without success.

dialog one: inombordssnack (introvertal chat)

Completed Summer 2020.

The first book of this project is a tryout. I let a stream of consciousness (in my head) come out word by word without assessing and editing the output. It is a complete embarrassment. And a failure. I have kept the book as a reminder to myself: do not do this again.
