Left, a mock contents page from my artist's book South. The chart traces the associations generated by the word ’book’. The example destabilizes canonical notions of linear and logical visual hierarchies as navigational aids for readers. Though the chart is still hierarchical it is arguably not spatially indicative of where readers can find further information, it is more like a map of undiscovered territories than a useful representation of significant divisions within the book. Disorientation is a key theme within the fictional writing and algorithmic procedures of South.
