Jorge Accame, Prologue:"In September 2005, I met Thorsten Dennerline by chance during a residency at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire. We immediately hit it off. He spoke a fair amount of Spanish; I, some English, and with limited resources we understood that we had similar ideas on life and art. ... We soon realized that we could do a project together. We threw a few ideas on the table, and landed on this one one: to tell a short story together in words and images. . At least two risks presented themselves: first, we wanted to avoid slipping into an illustrated text; images and words should contribute to the furthering of the action, without repeating themselves or getting in each other's way. Thorsten then proposed starting the story with an image, I responded with words, to which Thorsten answered with another image, and so on up until the end. Because of this alternating, we had to be careful to maintain the thread of the story and the continuity of our narration." "Halfway through, I had the impression that the story was heading in a clearer direction. I sensed that it could be about the night before Gregor Samsa changes into an insect. From that moment of suspect certainty we tightened its reins. Both forwards and backwards." Jonathan Pitcher, translator, is a scholar of Latin American literature, philosophy, and history. He joined the Bennington faculty of the Isabelle Kaplan Center for Languages and Culture in fall 2004. Jorge Accame is a writer and playwright. He was born in Buenos Aires but since 1982 has lived in the city of San Salvador de Jujuy, where he works as a lecturer in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Thorsten Dennerline is a printmaker-artist, who creates works in various media including drawing, printmaking, editioned books, and ceramics. He has worked on numerous collaborative projects with writers and poets. His work is narrative and deals with the interaction of text and image.
