Negative Space

A study of the film ‘Melancholia’ by Lars von Trier, served as a starting point for on an experimental, analogue exploration. In the movie a blue planet, Melancholia, is about to hit the Earth, and two sisters, Justine and Claire, find their relationship strained.

Just like in the movie, the book is divided into two parts, a center piece and an outside framework which connects the two. Black and blue are used alternately to express who is taking care of whom.
