Register is a reinterpretation from the book Smut: an anatomy
of dirt by Christian Enzensberger. The task of the one-week workshop was to generate a booklet out of an index or register of an unknown book and to find a method to reproduce and define the scope of its content.
I classified words depending on the number of their subitems and formed cluster. Each cluster builds one page that is divided in colums related to the page numbers the mentioned words appear. The words itself and their repitition in different columns offer conclusions about the genre of the content of the original book and indicates the distance between the content sections. The text looks like a pattern and forms an image, which becomes the new content of each page.
