Acta Diurna note:
Acta Diurna is a series of sentences culled from newspapers, a daybook compressed, and a found composition arranged as a continuous narrative and cultural commentary. This book is daily news, documentary poetry, a catalogue of perspectives, a metonymical post and a global body of text. How as readers might we engage with constant streams of urgent headlines, articles and alerts? How do we interpret the countless juxtapositions between multiple lives, stories, locations and histories? Acta Diurna is an attempt to sew text into textile, to compile multi-voiced reporting and to present a collective alternative assemblage of news.
