¶#2: Bundle theory (pre-order)
For #2 in the ¶ (Pilcrow)-series Romy Day Winkel has approached collecting, or hoarding, as an aesthetic of patience. Through her selection of Wikipedia-articles she looks at what happens when objects, magical or otherwise, are all put together. If it is impossible, and perhaps even uninteresting, to know when a collection or archive is finished, how does one start to hoard impatiently?
¶#2 consists solely of texts and images found on the online collaborative platform Wikipedia. ¶#2 is assembled by Romy Day Winkel, designed by Tjobo Kho and Wouter Stroet, edited by Jan-Pieter ‘t Hart and published by OUTLINE. ¶#2 is printed in an edition of 150 and it will be published in May 2021.
Romy Day Winkel is a writer, editor and musician based in Amsterdam. She interviews poets for Perdu’s podcast series and runs a publication called SNAKY ZINE. Her research on radicalising romance is expanding via the Critical Studies program at Sandberg Institute, as well as her digital archive and radio show.
