By Michalis Pichler. Published by Gato Negro Ediciones.
In 1972, Ulises Carrión produced his first artist’s book SONNET(S) which consists of 44 variations of a sonnet by Dante Gabriel Rosetti titled “Heart’s Compass.”
Using the language as a material, Carrión writes Rossetti’s poem over and over again on a typewriter, in slightly different versions. This book today is considered Carrión’s first “artist book,” where he still uses language, but quite differently.
In 2009 Michalis Pichler, in a similar approach but using a computer, mostly Word or Open Office, created 44 new variations and published a book titled SOME MORE SONNET(S).
