RADICALIS WORD LINES

The word lines in Radicalis parallel the forward movement of the genealogies, and side collages as well as explore interconnections between word definitions. Each page spread of each side (recto and verso) of Radicalis contains one word and its definition, starting with RADICAL and ending with HARMONIZE located at the center of the book. Although each side begins and ends with the same word, the journey through the dictionary is different on each.

This element was inspired by Bonnie Gordon’s project The Anatomy of the Image Maps.

"The image-maps in this book record the progress of a decade long exploration of the content of a dictionary and a stretchable halftone photograph. The book and the picture served one another as tools for discovering their mutual underlying subject matter"--Introduction to The Anatomy of the Image Maps.
