Abstract:

"Ubiq: A Mental Odyssey (which borrows its title from Philip K. Dick's Ubik and Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey) proposes to construct a "mental space" through a narrative - mixing ravers, science-fiction and comic strips - presented through illuminations in the style of old children's books." "For this book, Mathieu Briand chose to encounter the writer Daniel Foucard, a hard-to-classify author (of, amongst others, Novo and Cold, in 2006 - and, Civil, in 2008) often associated with new textualities crossed with cybernetics, mutations and schizophrenia, and whose obsession is to want to inhabit a new territory, like the reformed pirates imagined in this book. He then slides in a few strips from his childhood hero, the Argentine comic strip artist, Juan Gimenez." "This artistic proposition is concerned with diversion, role-plays, "parallel" worlds in a playful and interactive to-and-fro between images and text. Its result is a diffracted narrative in which the book becomes a playground as well as what's at stake in that artistic experience that unites the two protagonists of this book."--Jacket.
