It Had Something To Do With The Telling Of Time

Spaces in fiction - Constructs of reality

Onomatopee 108

‘It Had Something to do With the Telling of Time’ by Annee Grøtte Viken, uses fiction as a tool to explore new ways of thinking about and understanding space. Between language and image, fiction interweaves the words of the author with the reader’s personal experience, allowing space to materialize in the imagination.

A screenplay in seven acts, the book is based on descriptions of physical spaces extracted from a selection of seven novels. Each act is a conversation between one of the fictional spaces and the narrator or protagonist of the original story. The fictional spaces claim existence, both as individuals and as a collective, inviting the reader on a journey, from the naturally created cave to the man-made dystopia.

During Dutch Design Week fellow artists, designers and architects will present a proposal for a work based on the first chapter (The Cave/The Explorer) of the book.
With contributions by: Maximiliaan Royakkers, Roeland Otten, Ryuta Sakaki, Alonso Vázquez, Ewelina Marta Niedziella, Esther Bentvelsen, Elejan van der Velde
