Time Based Editions

Ant Hampton, David Bergé


Time Based Editions is a series of books binding print to time and merging sound with paper. Each book is a unique work by a different artist. An audio track combines narration, soundscape, and instructions that guide you over a given time through a book. Audio and visual are separate elements here, held together in the present through a physical participation; turning, flicking and comparing pages, diving into a here-and-now of the page.

This liveness can be amplified when experienced together as a group. Time Based Editions are also presented as events for audiences; collective and synchronized engagements with the book in theaters, museums, and site specific locations.
