MIRKASTAN by Mirka Duijn

3rd\NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

From The Proconsul

MIRKASTAN is a travelogue in real time made by filmmaker Mirka Duijn, gleaned from her twitter feed during a journey from Amsterdam to Tokyo via Serbia, Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan (sort of), Uzbekistan, and China in the Spring of 2009.

Like the individual frames of a film, a narrative is formed by tiny flickers of text, in which each is individually significant, but which combine to create an abstracted moving image of the experience being portrayed. Plus it's funny and multilingual.

Hardcover is a limited edition of 50, signed and numbered. EUR 40 / USD 45
