Title of the book

MÄANDERTAL calligraphy title
Del has drawn this sweet calligraphy title for me. So the decision for the title of the upcoming printed copy has been made: MÄANDERTAL (meander valley).
Thinking about production details now (monetary costs…)—and— most important, whether to meander around some more or include the recent meanderings (shown on this and other pages of the backyard). I’m a bit limited to the number pages… monetary costs.

This stolen and glitch edited ai-subtitled video still of a video work by Yann van der Cruyssen would make a great opening to the book, no?

water scanner (I)

Auf den Flachbettscanner wird ein Glasbecken gestellt und mit Wasser gefüllt. Die Bilder in Papierformaten bis DIN A4 werden auf die Wasseroberfläche gelegt und schwimmend der Scan gestartet. Von unten fährt das Licht entlang und leuchtet durch den Glasbeckenboden und das Wasser die Bilder an. Als Becken kann eine Lasagneform verwendet werden, es bleibt oft ein Herstellerlogo sichtbar. Ins Wasser können zusätzliche Kristalle gegeben werden, Salz oder Brause, oder auch Farbe. Das Papier kann mehrfach untergetaucht werden. Bewegungen des Wassers während des Scanvorgangs oder leichte Schubser und Tippser ans Papier haben Wellen zur Folge, die wegen der Fahrtrichtung des Scanners in Verzerrungslinien enden. Auch Wassertropfen und andere Erschütterungen von oben auf das Wasser resultieren in harten Verschiebungslinien (glitch). Wasserlösliche Farben müssen noch ausprobiert werden, außerdem: Lipidzugaben, mechanische Vibration des Beckens (Rüttler), Ventilatorwindwellengang, Schaum, einzelner Wassertropfen, Schwimmende Objekte […]
A glass basin is placed on the flatbed scanner and filled with water. The images in paper formats up to DIN A4 are placed on the water surface and the scan is started floating. From below, the light travels along and illuminates the images through the glass basin bottom and the water. A lasagne mold can be used as a basin, often a manufacturer’s logo remains visible. Additional crystals can be added into the water, salt or sherbet, or even liquid paint. The paper can be submerged several times. Movements of the water during the scanning process or slight pushes and taps on the paper result in waves that end up in distortion lines because of the direction of travel of the scanner. Also water drops and other shocks from above on the water result in hard displacement lines (glitch). Water-soluble inks still have to be tried, also: lipid additions, mechanical vibration of the basin (shaker), fan airwave, foam, single water drop, floating objects [...]
