Sticks and Stones
Dennis Muñoz Espadiña
These black and white abstract visual score cards are a playfull allusion to Rorschach testing cards aswell as (black) metal logos.
The images were part of a larger project in which Muñoz Espadiña had two vocal performers explore their voices in the Saint Jakob church in Winterswijk (NL).
Starting point for each session were folded images he created from scans in the forest surrounding the town. By asking the performers to unfold the pieces of paper, thus changing its subjectively encoded meaning, the images could be used as subconscious storyboards for their vocal improvisations.

Speech Choke is a collection of flash fiction written by Helena Grande. It includes letters to imaginary lovers, speculations, absurd official events, digital ghosts, social fears, anxiety, theatrical interludes, and odes to kissing. Speech Choke expresses a feeling of categorical displacement, a state of being unable to communicate verbally and reach the outside world. Speech Choke is an experiment in the interplay between desire and the failed attempts to fulfil it.

The title of this publication stems from its vacuum-packed contents.
It contains 12 printed cards on which images and symbols are printed on one side, while on the other it features a flash fiction story. By finding the right order of the cards it’s possible to read the story. The tale tells the story of a modern-day protagonist with the name of Sisyphus, and how he falls in and out of love with a Dutch milkmaid. Secondly, there is a piece of cheese inside of it. The cheese was part of a 12kg cheese wheel, brought by the artist from the Netherlands to Greece in order to reinterpret The Myth of Sisyphus in a modern context. After the cheese wheel had been pushed through Athens, it was cut in 24 parts and vacuum-sealed together with the printed story.
The project is both an investigation into how fiction and reality are constantly swallowing and consuming each other, and how suffering and pain gives rise to enjoyment and happiness.
