Initiated Book Acts, a new project for AMBruno, in which artists were invited to perform and embody the concept or essence of one of their books, and so to present the book by other means. Some of the works were created for film, by means of digital animation or appropriated extracts, and performance pieces were recorded onto film, each of the resulting videos was shown on a monitor accompanied by a copy of the originating book.
