Woman’s World

May 15th, 2008

Woman’s World is a novel by Graham Rawle. The entire book is constructed with words cut out of women’s magazines from the early 1960s. He didn’t first write the novel and then replaced the words, but the story developed together with his findings in those magazines. It took him 5 years to complete this project, he used thousands of magazines and 40.000 text fragments to fill the 437 pages. Nerve did an interview with him, you can read it here. This is very cool way to write a book!

This video is actually quite boring, only after one minute it starts to become interesting. It’s basically a demo of the book ‘Magic Moving Images: Animated Optical Illusions‘. The images in the book are ‘layered’ animations which you can see when you slide a half transparent mask over it …
Mmmhh, I can think of some ways to use this technique … give me that gold lion damn it.
