The book is an experimental study about the way how new technology creates possibilities where traditional edges become blurred.
“Make to order” -services allow an existence of a real physical object that yet still does not exist. There is a book that is real and can be ordered and touched and smelled, yet still in reality it does only exist when one orders it. This is very different from the traditional concept of books and publishing.
To underline the interaction between digital and physical, the content of the book was taken from the One Way Ticket -project. This creates a reverse cycle where digital becomes tangible yet still it does not yet exist.
One Way Ticket, or OWT is a project that started as as study of using a blog as a media for fictional work. Over the time the project transformed from blog posts into a collection of loosely connected irrational pieces of poetry to the point where in the end the author of the texts becomes unclear.
The transformation can be seen as a development of a condition, as well as a critic to the nature of Internet where amount of content is increasing and simultaneously the relation between elements becomes invisible.
Some content of the OWT-blog was later used in the book “Aphorisms from the edge of the walk-in closet”.
