- Schematics : A Love Story
A board book by Julian Hibbard.
- In this sparse, meditative, and enigmatic narrative embroidered with found schematic diagrams, Schematics : A Love Story mediates on relationships, memory and the way time links them. Julian Hibbard's quietly unfolding story coaxes out of the images and text new hints of meaning revealing more and more of the paradoxes that shape love, and life. The book also contains the essay Out of Nowhere written by David LaRocca, Ph.D.
- "I am a deconstructor. I like taking things apart. What follows is a story of thoughts told through the language of juxtaposition. At it’s core, Schematics : a Love Story explores cause and effect, change and invariance, time and memory, truth and error, the correlation between love and loss, the beauty of mark making and the nature of fleetingness. The found diagrams are the result of internet word searches derived from the essence of the accompanying text entries."
