Nine Gestures for J.D. Salinger

Creative Work
Record Status: 
Description (in English): 

A poetic tribute to the writings of J.D. Salinger, this work explores Nine Stories (1953), by inviting participants to write their thoughts into a book in response to nine individual prompts, each corresponding to one of the stories. Interacting with the book reveals a series of poems that follow thematic gestures from the original writings.

To interact, open the book to any one page, read the typed prompt and then write down either a single word, or short phrase as a response, writing onto the adjoining page’s writable section using the pen. A nearby screen responds by offering several composed verses with each inscription. When a section is filled, that gesture is considered complete.
