The Book Of ██████

<legend> </legend> is a collaborative project of poems and drawings based on text redactions of The Book of Earths, by Edna Kenton, a compendium of theories of the shape of the Earth, and its surrounding folklore.

While the project is rooted in analog works, specifically poems by Justin Petropoulos and ink drawings by Carla Gannis, it grows these texts and images into digital paintings, animations, projection mapped & 3D printed sculptures, as well as interactive works.

The project’s title, <legend> </legend>, is an empty html tag. The viewer/reader must complete the meaning themselves. The definition of the legend is determined by the movement within ones own cartographies."

My contribution to the project, The Book Of ██████ allows users to further redact both text and images from the <legend> </legend> collection, creating new compositions which are then posted to the project's @legendcgjp twitter account.
