S P R I N G F E V E R : A Manual on Madness (2016) (Edition of 20) Dimensions: 21 x 29,7 x 1 cm 38 pages; printed transparencies; metal ring binder; blank A4 paper SPRING FEVER took the form of a “manual on madness”. A reading contraption that explored definitions of madness and meaning and questioned the importance of inner speech set against the materiality of words and images. Taken from found material from a personal collection of historical and daily events, the manual wove together the encoded conversations of Guy de Cointet, interviews by Eugene Ionesco and Vilém Flusser, the letters of Antonin Artaud, Aphasia and Kierkegaard’s notion of the inner voice, as well as the fake sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, to name a few.
