How many stories do we need to know?
How many ways can we tell the same story?
Is it possible to hold so many stories at once?
It will depend on your interpretation, how we see, and hear the story. Maybe we will make a connection from the story to our life experiences, to the moment, and polish a few corners or not. We will get an idea to define, to understanding as our brains vibrate.
Here are some of my visual interpretation of these thoughts. I want to capture the sense of distortions to the extreme, maybe not so much. On these images, the interconnection relation starts from the previous series of book folding and pencils, they merged and now this series moves to the next level. They mixed the old and traditional to a modern and colorful look. It compares how knowledge moved the world to the digital era. The question is: What do you see now?
The 3rd part of Alex’s Books series, "Too Many Stories" started in 2016. There is no photomontage in any of these images. One single photo does the magic for each picture!
