Kate Armstrong: PATH, A Generative Bookwork in Twelve Volumes

PATH is a 12-volume book with text generated by the physical movement of an anonymous individual living in the city of Montreal between 2005 – 2007. Each time this individual accessed the internet using public wi-fi over the course of this two year period, they were tagged with a textual passage exploring themes of visual, personal, and spatial patterns as reflected in the lives of fictional characters. Accumulating over time, these behavioural and technological points of contact come to form a pattern of language that both reveals and conceals a life lived in a city. This 7300-page box set edition is co-published by Publication Studio Vancouver and UNIT/PITT Projects, and includes a 168-hour mp3 audiobook edition on SD card.

Kate Armstrong is a Vancouver-based writer, artist and independent curator. Her interdisciplinary practice merges networked media, written forms and urban experiences.
