ONLINE: Nawin Nuthong, ‘Aleaf comic epub’, 2022
Aleaf / Myths – Histories – Virtual Worlds. All the stories that we know and everything that we have heard, suspended in a universe where their connections are slowly made apparent. Aleaf doesn’t just look to tell you the stories once again. Rather, in looking between these (un)fictions of humanity’s own making, these networks – nigh-imperceptible – are revealed as a tale in their own right.
Working through the varied realms through which stories propagate, Nawin Nuthong rationalises the de-centrality of the protagonist – not just spatially, but temporally. Arriving at a critical realisation that every individual is merely afloat in a sea of others, drifting along in the currents of time. (Text: John Tung)
