America, my way

(1 customer review)

The book concentrates on selected moments of a journey across the American landscape. It can be understood as 3 different journeys across the country as each book contains repeating pictures in every book  as well as changing pictures. The aim of this approach is to show the vast amount of possibilities that a journey can offer. If you open all the booklets on the same page, this alternative pictures function as triptychs, forming an unity.

“I really do like the book! First I love the format, the rough cardboard case with the engraved text inside, and the three booklets instead of just one book… Even the little magnet I like!
This unusual and somewhat unsettling presentation transfers into the booklets, and the choice of images, and the sequences I think.

We are not used to having to deal with three booklets… And when you realize that some of the images are identical and some are not, you would like to have them all opened at the same time, but you can’t… or you need two friends ! To go through this lonely journey, this is kind of paradoxical!” – from the “L’Ascenseur vegetal” book review by Claude Lemaire

  1. John Darwell

    ‘America, My Way’ reads like a visual poem divided into three subtly colour coded chapters that blend, through image and text, the personal and the unfamiliar.
    The familiar taking the form of repeated images and text, the unfamiliar in the form of substitution of images that nudges the reader into initially questioning what they see. ‘Has the sequence changed, how do the images reappear or alter’?
    In this manner the books present a journey both physical and metaphysical through a landscape of recognition and disorientation and, within this, replicating the sensations of Sitar’s original journey across a landscape that is familiar and yet somehow not.
