About


The Market

I am Emese Csornai, a visual artist and theater professional. I make installations, light design, and direct movement performances, and paint and draw in the rest of the time.

My project is making 100 copies of a 50 pages artbook, that is functionally a fiction novel for adults.

HOW?

I am doing so by compressing my 3D ventures in light design to the format of a book. This means the book is full of cut-outs and transparencies, and with drawings and graphics of mine, with text elaborated in the images. This transforms the book more into an animation or a portable installation compared to the classical book format. The story within is told in verses. 

WHAT?

The book tells a story about consuming emotions: A young couple who live in a well-balanced relationship buys out of fun 1 object each at a market. The function of the objects are unclear for them, so they buy them as flashy souveniers. After going through a number of disturbing emotional transformations we might all be familiar with, they conclude the souveniers brought them into trouble. They go back to the market to ask for refund. They learn there is no such option at the market, and the only way to get their old lives back is to find another two emotions and balance the influence of the first two. From this point on their lives will revolve around the Market..

WHERE and WHY?

I will  make the books in Fablab Berlin, a young and innovative lab of technology, art and design, with social ethics, very supportive with this project, the sort of people you want to have around you. I will have 4 busy full months with this project, and it might lead me to a publisher, or a wider range distribution of self-published books. I have to work on the overall quality of the language, words used as part of the image, and graphics adapted into 2D and 3D space in a variety of ways.

I am very keen on this idea, and I wish for another chunk of time in which I can explore the gap between 2 and 3 dimensions. All the people close to me seem to like it very much too, and demand that I realize it.

I will spend approximately 375 lab hours and 250 outside the lab so it will be pretty much my fulltime job in this period.

In any case, say the work gets published thanks to this campaign, the first 99 numbered books and much more presents are offered to the kind pledgers who help me realize this work.

For a little insight please have a look at my website!

WHEN?

schedule of project:

It is 4 month of work, in a lab, with a studio space to work the non-lab hours well. It is bookbinding, digital image editing, drawing, laser cutting, painting... It will be 5000 pages of hard work and fun!

In this book there is thicker paper to match the elasticity of the transparencies and keep the cut-outs able to flip. This multiplied by 5000, plus cover, print...

From the money I collect I will pay the lab, studio rent, courier who gets pledgers their presents, paper, transparencies, glue, binding material, printshop, so everything that makes it possible to have this book delivered in good shape on time.

 WHY PLEDGE?

  • This is a multimedia artpiece, a unique meeting of drawing and cut-outs. A wonderful present and a real nice object to own. Who says it is just the kids who deserve fun books?
  • the theme is actual, the emotional texture is accessible, the language of the book is playful. 
  • It engages the mind in a high level of spacial abstraction, so it is very good for your brains! So is it for mine to make :)
  • This book is an adventure. It does not become boring.
  • By pledeging you are helping an artist to realize an unconventional work with high productional costs. By doing so you are encouraging a format of art that would not be realized without you. Compliment your inner dreamer!

WHEN CAN I CHOOSE THE PICTURES?

If you are interested in any of these images then as soon as the campaign is over, if you are patient then in the beginning of October the possibilities broaden up.

Risks and challenges

Fablab is an open lab where anyone can do their projects. Although my project is agreed upon, this does not mean that I can sit 8 hours at the laser machine per day. I will get a fair chunk of a day and I can smartly divide tasks, as for there is plenty to do for the book outside of the lab too.
