Flip book for catalogue, 2014
offset, flipbook integrated in catalogue ‘Time is Ticking’
26 x 19,5 cm
Note / The medium film is a time-based art, just as a book is. This thought gave Van Warmerdam the idea to make a flipbook that piggy backs on the pages of the catalogue. MvW: ‘Originally I wanted to express the speed of the flipbook in the title by calling it “Prrrrrr……” but to emphasize a book in a book seemed more to the point to me.’
