    Tigr in use for a work that started at the seminar “l’ordre compliqué” lead by Anton Stuckardt at HfG Karlsruhe, Germany. The book documents my attempt to put Herman Melvilles text “The Whiteness of the Whale” (taken from his novel Moby Dick) in a new order. By confronting Melvilles worded descriptions of the color white with associative images I tried to restructure the narrative of the text as a catalogue of words and pictures.
