About this product
- DescriptionWhat happens when a love story has an infinite number of possible endings? What if a computer re-sorts a vel so that copy is the same? A radical assault upon the vel from one of Italy's most radical artists. The story involves two lovers, there is disruption on the streets of Milan, protesters by Porta Ticinese. Can they escape and be together? How will events change their destiny? In Trista, Nanni Balestrini brilliantly experiments with form and storytelling to create a new type of vel in which techlogy, author and the reader themselves collaborate to create the narrative. Constructed of ten chapters, each consisting of twenty texts taken from guidebooks, atlases, newspapers and fiction, each printed edition of the vel is ordered uniquely.
