bonding with micrographia

bonding with micrographia 

Cut-paper collage, 11" x 17" (28 x 43 cm)

The dimensions of this collage allow you to appreciate how tiny the writing by Robert Walser is, reproduced in its actual size. It's in German, but is said to be hard for even native Germans to read.

I like this! The juxtaposition of those amorphous, practically oozing organic shapes with the tight lines of text, is quite effective. :)

I guess Walser was a miniaturist, in that he worked in short forms, I think. Paradoxically I find there’s something intimidating or overwhelming in handwritten, tiny writing. So much consciousness that has to be squeezed in there. All the tiny writers I know are intense with ideas. Yet, as here, free forms flow from those shrinking pages. It makes me think of the novels, poems and other testaments smuggled out of prisons and camps.

Tiny Writers v Big Writers! What a great battle!

In the light of what you say, Steve, it's worth noting that Walser was diagnosed as having schizophrenia, and was in a mental hospital—presumably with limited access to paper—at the time of creating the micrographia in that collage.
