Dice is a publication where I have examined the chance; can you get a significant content with the chance of a dice? I also wanted to examine if a significant content is important for something to be interesting.These are some reflections that I’ve had in mind when creating this publication.
The main reason for creating Dice was to get a closer look at what poetry really is and if it’s possible to create something that could remind of poetry with help of chance. The format of a folder was an important part of Dice, I didn’t want it to look like the everyday poetry book and I felt that a folder was more accessible than the usually small and exclusive poetry book.
The book that I’ve chosen to randomize the content from is Frans Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. I sought after the possibility for people to track the words back to the book and experience the words transformation. The Metamorphosis is a book that many people got in their bookshelf and it is easy to find at the antiquarian.
I also wanted to examine alternative layouts and to let the reader find his own way trough the text, not necessarily from the left to the right.
