Cynthia Lollis: "This book that can be read three ways by reordering the pages according to the code printed on each page's left margin. "A [and] B orders each represent a fictional character in Kierkegaard's work Enten/Eller (1843) [in English, Either/Or]. It's a book of 'found' letters between Mr. B (the ethical voice), and Mr. A (the aesthetic voice). We hoped to visually represent their positions, first via the easy to follow numeric ordered (plus English than German pattern) that speaks Mr. B's argument for an ethical life, in contrast with Mr. A's position that can only be read ... [after the pages have been] reshuffled into A-order and only when the beginning of a thought is completed on the following page (first only in German, then only in English) .... "For CD order (Cynthia and Daniela's), we chose seven Either/Or phrases in each of our three languages (Dani's, mine, and Kierkegaard's). Other than A or B, and X or Y, here are our selections with translations: Danish: Dag eller nat (Day or night) At blive eller ikke at blive (To be or not to be) StrĂ¥lende eller grumset (Sunny or cloudy) Legeme eller appel (Body or spirit) Heldig eller bedrøvelig (Happy or sad) Snarlig eller sent (Early or late) Oppe eller nede (Up or down) English: Security or Adventure One or more Speak up or be silent Now or later Presence or Absence Together or apart For here or to go German: Karriere oder Kinder (Career or motherhood) Rock oder Hosen (Skirt or pants) Original oder Kopie (Original or copy) Weich oder hart (Soft or hard) Alles oder nichts (Something or nothing) Jetzt oder nie (Now or later) Bleiben oder gehen (Stay or go) "The photographs were taken by the artists during a December 2007 visit to Copenhagen, Denmark.
