futuristika_zafer-aracagök-zeminsiz-Üçleme_02

BİLGİ Görsel İletişim Tasarımı Öğretim Görevlisi Dr. Zafer Aracagök‘ün  90’larda yayınlanan üç kült kitabını (Eve Dönmek İstemiyorum, Anti-Hamlet & Sıfırografya) tek ciltte bir araya “Zeminsiz Üçleme” Kült Neşriyat tarafından yayımlandı. Kapağın kitap ve kapak illüstrasyonları Bora Başkan’a ait:

“(…) Zeminsiz Üçleme, hemen fark edileceği gibi, eleştiriden tasvire, yorumdan monoloğa pek çok felsefi ve edebi yazı unsurunu alışılmadık biçimlerde kullanan, farklı düşünüm ve duygulanım ritimlerini eş-anlı harekete geçirebilen bir toplam. Ancak burada söz konusu olan, sadece türler arası geçişkenlik, sınır kaymaları yada çakıştırmaya, harmanlamaya dayalı bir kurgulama tekniği değil. Zeminsiz Üçleme’nin bizi maruz bıraktığı çok daha zorlayıcı,rahatsız edici bir karmaşa. Mantık içinde mantıksızı deneyen (evet, “söz’de hiç mantık aranır mı?”), hep başka bir mantığa doğruilerleyen bir yazı…”
