A Perec Paper Plane [repost]

A Perec Paper Plane

If summer evokes images of flight, here’s a fun repost for those far away from Berkeley this summer or simply just dreaming of travel. Originally posted on Siglio Press’ blog last year, the Georges Perec Paper Plane is a downloadable paper airplane that “as you fold it, words and phrases appear and disappear, recombine, repeat, and meanings shift as the paper transforms into something that takes flight.” It appropriates text from “A Page” published in Species of Spaces and Other Pieces (Espèces d’espaces). And if you’re curious about the literary experimentalist Georges Perec, the Library has exactly 72 works by the novelist, filmmaker, documentalist and essayist in French and in English translation.
