Picnic : order, ambiguity and community by Kevin Harris and Gemma Orton
Submitted by on November 15, 2011 – 10:00 amNo Comment

Download A3 | Ledger PDF 5Mb Read Online

About : People interact around food. Conventional mealtimes are ordered occasions when social relationships are reaffirmed. But picnic is different, often characterised by a wobbly combination of conviviality and disorder. So what does it tell us about the way we think of ‘community’?

About : These eBooks are extrapolated from the visual essay I composed at Proboscis during my four months internship, loosely based on their work and projects.

First it developed as a concise mind map which outlined the fundamental design underpinning Proboscis’ long journey. It then evolved and bloomed in different and unexpected directions, drawing on my past knowledge, feeding on fortuitous connections and new sources of inspiration. It was elaborated following different paths even if I found myself juxtaposing pictures or quotations, originally designed for separate ‘themes’, pleasantly coming together. The lines I have drawn are just some of the infinite possible threads I could have kept to.

This is my own series of allusions, suggestions, relations and reflections about citizenship, storytelling, the mapping process and space, place, city.

Published October 2011

Elena Festa completed a PhD in Comparative Literature and Culture in Rome and after that worked as an intern at Proboscis. Her main interests are postcolonialism, literature and issues concerning cultural dynamics and urban imaginary.

About : Cartoon de Salvo are now publishing four more books recording some of what is now over 100 improvised stage stories (and two updated books). Hard Hearted Hannah and Other Stories is a brand new, entirely improvised adventure. To begin we elicit a ‘simple title of, for example, a movie that’s never been made’ from an audience member. Then they choose a few songs from a playlist of our band’s repertoire. We think for a few seconds and then we start, working in those songs and the show lasts between 50 mins and up to 2 hours. We never limited ourselves to any place, genre or time. We place implicit trust in each other’s narrative instinct. The idea is, having been exposed to stories all of our lives, we all have a very developed sense of what should happen next.

This series of Diffusion eBooks explores some of the patterns that came randomly out of the air, as told by Brian Logan and illustrated by Alex Murdoch. The first two books were Classics from Nowhere’ – where we tapped into story structures from myths and fairytales and ‘World of the Strange and Bizarre‘ where our unconcious minds led us into some very odd situations indeed. Now we are adding four books looking at how Music we play influenced stories, how Mysteries created more complex storylines. Two more explore how Silent Characters and Tangled Relationships made for surprising turns in our yarns. The idea of course is these stories existed in their moment over the past two years; but when I discovered that Brian was writing them down the following day I thought I’d put them together with my illustrations that I was getting down in the van after each gig.

Hard Hearted Hannah and Other Stories is created by Cartoon de Salvo.
Co-commissioned by Farnham Maltings and the Lyric, Hammersmith

Published March 2011

Cartoon de Salvo are of the few companies in the UK working with whole story, rather than sketch-based, improvisation formats. Hard Hearted Hannah and Other Stories went on to become the Telegraph’s Top Ten Comedy Shows of 2008 and following the British Council Showcase in Edinburgh we were invited to take it to Washington DC’s Kennedy Center. We’re now working on a new long-form impro format called Made Up, in which we collaborate with a band; we’re next performing that at Pulse Festival in June 2011.

Cartoon de Salvo is Rebecca Hurst, Brian Logan and Alex Murdoch and this show also involves performer Neil Haigh and musical director Paul Kissaun. Ed Collier is the producer and can be contacted on ed@cartoondesalvo.com

Download A4 | US Letter PDF 5.5Mb Read Online

About : An eBook of photos celebrating the stories so far in the history of Cartoon de Salvo.

Published October 2010

Founded in 1997, Cartoon de Salvo is one of the country’s most respected theatre companies. Their cocktail of script-defying improvisation, live music and exceptional storytelling has won critical acclaim and a devoted following. On their quest to mess with the live theatre experience, the Salvos make theatre that wears its heart on its sleeve, that likes an adventure, and that never forgets that the audience is the number one reason for putting on the show. The company has played everywhere from tiny village halls in Cumbria to cliff tops in Cornwall, from proper producing houses to shopping malls, to Edinburgh, Glastonbury and Hong Kong International Festivals.  Show include: Meat and Two Veg, The Sunflower Plot, their acclaimed allotment set outdoor theatre event and The Ratcatcher of Hamelin. In 2010 the Salvo’s are joining forces with producer Ed Collier (Fuel, China Plate, Arvon) and touring Pub Rock in urban boozers across the UK, making a new show about science and religion called The Irish Giant, creating a new music impro event called Made Up and taking completely unscripted Hard Hearted Hannah and Other Stories to the Kennedy Centre, Washington DC.

About : A book describing the progress of the Berber-Abidiya Archaeological Project in Dangeil, Sudan. The project, “has focused on the late Kushite city of Dangeil (third century BC – fourth century AD). The site is endangered by modern development. Dangeil is located 350km north of Khartoum and has been a mystery to modern archaeologists because of its unique appearance, though in actuality few have ever visited the site. It consists of a series of large discrete mounds, many standing over four metres above the surrounding plain.”

What Type Are You? A StoryCube Game by Mandy Tang
Submitted by on August 4, 2010 – 9:42 am5 Comments

Download A4 | US Letter PDF 870Kb

About : Having looked at the diverse range of published StoryCubes on the Diffusion and Bookleteer websites, I found that each had an inspiring story to tell or contained overlooked information to be acknowledged. But it wasn’t just the content of these publications which interested me, it was how the content was presented in the form of a cube.

When holding a cube you find yourself tempted to see whats on the other faces, with this in mind I decided to make a game which will go hand in hand with the eBooks. The concept of the game was fairly simple, from the starting point pick a path (line) and follow it around the cube until you reached a destination. Several paths would overlap, giving the player a choice to change direction. Once the player had reached a destination, they will use the eBook to find out its description.

With this idea it creates a different kind of interaction with the cube, instead of being guided by text, the player is free to choose and explore any chosen path. Or in some cases the player might try to work out a way to reach a specific destination.

Apart from readjusting the orientation of one or two pages, the eBook was fairly straightforward to make. Without the need of additional glue or staples and only using the slotting mechanism the finished eBook was very secure. Overall I had fun and enjoyed making the StoryCube with the eBook and look forward to seeing what other people create.

About : Recently our neighbours, Cosmo China, celebrated their 20th anniversary with an exhibition of special hand painted plates by some of their artists and friends. Proboscis helped them put together a simple book showing all the plates with biographical details of each of the artists. Co-owner of Cosmo and artist, Josie Firmin, painted the picture on the front cover.

PPOD copies of this book will be available to buy in the shop from early August.

Published July 2010

Cosmo China is a handpainted ceramics studio and shop in Bloomsbury London. The shop was opened in 1990 by Josie Firmin & Christopher Strangeways, and a second shop was opened in Canterbury, Kent in 1992. There are currently over 15 artists painting for Cosmo in both shops.

Cocktail Recipes by Karine Dorset
Submitted by on July 15, 2010 – 2:51 pmOne Comment

Download A3 | Ledger PDF 2.9Mb

About : Cocktail Recipes is an eBook designed for people aged 18 years and over. It’s about making cocktails, which can be fun, and can also give you ideas for parties or a night in with your friends. I started off by looking for very different types of cocktails, form each other, and even looked at some of their history. I then collected images that related to the cocktails to add that decorative effect. Using Neo Office Drawing, I arranged the images and content I had to present this eBook. It was fun researching for this eBook, I even tried a couple or recipes my self. Make a couple yourself and see how fun it  is.

Greenhill Digital Storytelling Guide A4 | US Letter PDF 300Kb
Summary of Activities 2009 and plans for 2010 A4 | US Letter PDF 530Kb
A March Back in Time with the Pipers of Allandale A4 | US Letter PDF 96oKb

AboutGreenhill Digital Storytelling Guide: This is a short guide to community research and how the digital story is formed. It details some handy hints about how you identify interviewees, writing your interview questions and how you actually build a historical digital “story”. These stories can be really engaging because they mix images with a real experience of life in a particular community. They can also be shared really easily and are very cheap to produce if you don’t have much of a budget. You can record interviews and combine the voice with digital images from archives or images of objects that have meaning, to create something really visual and emotional.

Summary of Activities 2009 and plans for 2010: This booklet details the Greenhill Historical Society’s wandering and exploring. A “village” situated in Bonnybridge, Greenhill has experienced a significant amount of upheaval and change over the last century. Most recently, hundreds of new and expensive houses have been built on vast tracts of greenbelt; mineral industry, predominantly mining, is all but gone. We’re interested in what this means for the area now. If Greenhill will never be as great as it once was, what does that mean for us? We hope that by exploring the derelict, the hidden, the new, the old, the stories of new and old residents we can come up with a new definition for this place.
A March Back in Time with the Pipers of Allandale: This project retraces the story of one remarkable family’s wartime sacrifice and the heroic journey taken by four brothers during the Second World War. Greenhill Historical Society created a weekend programme of events so that others could share their discoveries – a talk, a play, a walk, an exhibition, and a daffodil tea – as well as a chance to engage in debate about the issues it generated. This booklet contains a summary of the project as well as smaller versions of the exhibition and printed materials for you to view.

About : A 12 month schedule decorated with illustrations by Alice Angus who has been experimenting with creating different kinds of books for writing in to use herself, “I like the fact that I can create something physical, then use the computer and internet to make that into a yet another physical object; a book  to write in, carry around in my pocket and use, but I can also share that book digitally.”

Published May 2010

Alice Angus, co-director of Proboscis, is an artist inspired by rethinking concepts and perceptions of landscape and human relationships to the land. Over the last six years she has been creating a body of art work exploring concepts proximity and remoteness, technology and presence, against the lived experience and local knowledge of a place. In 2003, Alice was the only non-Canadian to participate in the first Artist in the Park residency in Ivvavik National Park in the Northern Yukon, organised by Parks Canada.

My Thought Book & StoryCube by Shalene Barnett

eBook A4 | US Letter PDF 620Kb
StoryCube A3 only PDF 560Kb

About : I initially came up with this idea when brainstorming for usage of the eBooks. The thought book originally started as a personal diary but then transformed into a thought book for both sexes and also different age groups. The design of the thought book is so simple it can be made at home.

I started off by accumulating different phrases, and then getting clipart to accompany the phrases. They then had to be arranged which was fun. I used a software package called Neo Office which allowed me to write text on top or behind pictures/drawings. I then had to create a template with lines in order to create a notepad which I was easily copy and pasted to create a few notepad pages. I am extremely pleased with my thought book and invite you to try and make your own.

About : Cook ‘N’ Colour is an eBook designed to help create bonds between children and adults. This eBook was based on the thought of being able to let children cook easy to do recipes and get creative by colouring in the drawings of the finished dishes. I got the recipes from my own knowledge of the dishes and printed, traced and scanned the images to my own design. Cook ‘N’ Colour is another book that has been added to the set of family eBooks I’ve been working on.
