In progress over the last year and a half, ‘Transcriptions 1-6’ is a commissioned work of regular DAI guest James Beckett for the Cancer Research Institute of the Netherlands (NKI - AVL).
An installation for the staircase of the new research laboratories, the work spans six floors in total. The opening will begin with a few short lectures by Tijs Goldschmidt and Robbert Dijkgraaf, after which we visit the work itself. The project is documented in a publication, which includes a description of the translation processes. At 96 pages, it is red on the sides and white on the inside, with texts by Will Holder, Robbert Dijkgraaf, Hans Schoo and Martine Van Kampen. Designed by Salome Schmuki, edited and copyedited by Tania Theodorou and Seamus Cater, and with documentation photographs by Qiu Yang, the book is available for free at the lectures and opening.
