Hypnagogie

2014

Edition | Text | Illustration

Hypnagogia signifies a state between being awake and being asleep in which hallucinations may occur.
This handmade edition (only french) contains twelve short stories, written together by the two of us. They each tell about the moments before one of the twelve character falls asleep. Narrated in first person, the texts were built line by line following a protocol that is based on the cadavre exquis. We constructed and reworked the histories together. The book is illustrated with stains that are produced in the same way as the inkspots in the Rorschach test.
The book is handmade with semi-transparent pages with the illustrations between pages printed with text.
