The book that transforms over time
WHAT WILL BECOME OF ME is a picture book with a very unique characteristic. It is made with two different inks (both magenta), one of which disappears 2-4 months after the book is taken out of its packaging.
The idea is not for the drawings to disappear, but rather for them to transform, allowing the observer to see how the book changes over time.
This goes hand in hand with the main themes of the book, which deals with the end, fleetingness and oblivion.
It is fascinating to see how, even within such a relatively short period, things can change so much with the passage of time, life’s adventure is at once a process of evolution and transformation, and the traces it leaves in our memory before disappearing forever.
The final result is a fossil record full of visual poetry. An unsolved puzzle, like the very path of existence.
