Time Based Editions
Time Based Editions, launching in September 2023, is a series of books merging sound to paper and binding printed matter to time. An audio track, activated by a QR code on the book's first page, combines narration, sound, and instructions that guide you over a given time through a book.
Adding time to the materiality and tactility of a book, creates a unique live experience: turning, flicking and comparing pages, closing and opening eyes, tracing lines on the page with a finger…
This live experience ignited by a book, is distributed through bookstores, but also through performative events as part of exhibitions, site-specific presentations or discursive programs. Simultaneously for a group over speakers in a room or an individual experience over your own headphones and phone.
Come to our table and we'll set you up for an individual session, it takes 77 min.
Each release is a unique work by a different artist. The first is 'Borderline Visible' by Ant Hampton released in September 2023. The book design is done by Roland Brauchli. Two more books are planned for 2024.
