The Archipelago of Old Age and Childhood: Creaturely Life in the Floating Archipelago
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-21, 18:23 authored by Sellbach, UF
The Floating Islands book began with a vast collection of small drawings, made by my father, Udo Sellbach, towards the end of his life. The drawings show a child in a row boat, surrounded by a floating archipelago inhabited by an alternate evolution of insects, birds and beasts. I wrote a story in response to this strange natural world. In the process, childhood and old age, began crossing over, opening up a creaturely realm at the edges of human time and space.
