«Lady Mikado» —
an interdisciplinary -project

«Lady Mikado» is an interdisciplinary -project about transformation and translation: from language into typographic form, from both language and typography into sound and video, from the moving image to music and sound.

The text by Ulrike Stoltz strings together picturesque fragments of phrases, partly alienated and repeated. [mehr]

The prints in the portfolio show the text, but words and letters were cut into pieces and rearranged thus creating images. (ink-jet prints on mould paper, 4 portfolios in different formats) [mehr]

The book contains some of these typographic images, abstract signs, combined with fragments of photographs, as well as the complete text. (coptic binding, ink-jet prints on Zerkall mould paper, 24 pages, 18 x 20 cm, 10 copies) [mehr]

Video (G. Zgraja) and soundtrack (H. Roemisch) are the framework for live performances with improvised music (Ulrike Stoltz (voc); Grzegorz Zgraja (tp); Henryk Roemisch (b) and others). [mehr]
