About the Book
'Boligslangen: on/off' – an artist's book created using a 70-minute digital video recording of the Danish building complex 'Boligslangen' (The Housing Serpent) located in Ørestad North on Amager island in Copenhagen, Denmark. The book are stills from the video made every minute while lights go on and off in the building on a Sunday evening in April 2008.
The book works as a flick book, reading first from the front cover but also with the option to be flipped over and read from the back to the front. It is partly inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's 'Rear Window' (1954).
This is an unlimited edition designed as a softcover perfect bound printed book on ProLine Uncoated 100# paper.
