Acts of Translation (Comprehensive Edition)

Acts of Translation is a collected series of thematic collaborations devoted to translation and communication. Five sections of the book describe a distinct act of translation, defined for the purposes of this project as “the conversion and communication of information.” Text for this project was gathered, edited, and recombined from recorded interviews conducted between 2021 and 2023 with a photographer, an ecologist, a type designer, a soprano performer, and an elementary Spanish teacher. When housed together, these collaborations offer unexpected points of connection across disciplines and highlight our shared experience. Acts of Translation is bound in a structure which can be expanded to reveal all five sections at once, or collapsed so that the texts from any two components can examined side by side. The project is housed in a chemise and slip case.
