Derek Beaulieu, isostatisk landhöjning
isostatisk landhöjning is a visual poem of staggering proportions. This swirling, dynamic composition made of Letraset debris measures 80 x 20 cm (31,5″ x 7,9″).
In derek beaulieu’s own words:
isostatisk landhöjning is the Swedish phrase for the post-glacial scraping and land-forming which results in the geography of northern countries (Canada and Sweden for example); this scraping results in inlets, small lakes and crenelated coastlines. This piece metaphorically scrapes the surface of writing, leaving behind the islands and coastlines of littered text; deposits left behind as meaning recedes.
Timglaset press is proud and pleased to publish isostatisk landhöjning by derek beaulieu as a leporello folded book in a handfolded, rubber stamped envelope. Optionally available rolled up in a tube. The poem itself has been screenprinted on Scandia 2000 170gsm paper by master screenprinter Michael Lönnström at (3)screen, Malmö.
