Fallen – Gesine Palmer and Gian-Philip Andreas
Two authors. One motive: Falling. From a social convention, from life, from reality. At will. Knowingly. Whether sect leader or astronaut. – all characters perceive the falling or the fall as an existencial limit expierience. As moment, in which ones destiney is taken out of their own controll. Behind all this stands the longing of the characterss after something unknown, endless – maybe nothingness – in free fall to see and fell. These texts don’t give answers. They convey a feeling of weigthlessness. This feeling is carried through the exceptional design of the book from Hans-Jörg Pochmann: above, underneath, behind and in front, the forces of gravity of the book pages are repealed by the progessivly turning type area, until one is reading it „backwards“ towards the mid of the book – the last page of one story leads to the first of another.
