The Death of the Authors
- An Mertens & Femke Snelting (Pays-Bas)
The Death of the Authors is a generative novel based on works that were welcomed in the public domain in 2012, 70 years after the death of their authors, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Rabindranath Tagore, Elizabeth Von Arnim, Sherwood Anderson and Henri Bergson. Every time you launch the script, a different novel is created. As a hommage to the life and demise of authors whose bodies merged with earth in 1941, each version takes you through four seasons that are composed of thematically selected sentences from their liberated texts.
