This assignment was to study the works of Italo Calvino and the structures he imposed in his books to tell his story, and then create a form sharing what I had learned. Calvino wrote in a visually descriptive way with wittiness and playfulness. An introduction to Calvino begins by informing the user how to interact with this panel.
The magnetic filings represent Calvino's collection of memories and thoughts accumulated in his life. The magnetic properties evoke the lead of a pencil or ink of a pen revealing the narratives guided and molded by his memories and thoughts.
The words share Calvino's experiences that seem to have influenced the stories as we know it. The image revealed with each preceding panel reference a significant period in Calvino's life that influenced a number of his books written during that period.
