For young Norwegian interior architect Annee Grøtte Viken, spaces--caves, museums, portals, mazes, thresholds, stages and mirrors--exist as both characters and collectives. In her experimental practice, Viken presents in this handsome gold book a screenplay in seven acts, which takes as its jumping-off point spaces in seven novels including Jules Verne's Mysterious Island, J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Franz Kafka's The Trial, Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Virginia Woolf's The Waves and Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Each act invites readers on a journey in which characters from the original stories engage in conversation with fictional spaces. A member of the collaborative architectural and artistic practice Albergo Rosa, Viken uses fiction as a methodology by introducing scriptwriting, materials, installations and performance into the context of architectural practice.
