Sky Arts Ignition : Memory Palace brings together a new work of fiction by Hari Kunzru with 20 commissions from leading graphic designers, illustrators and typographers to create a ‘walk-in’ book.
Each designer and illustrator has worked on a different passage of text from Hari Kunzru’s story.
They vary dramatically in scale, style and format.
The story is set in London in the future, when recording, writing, collecting and art are outlawed.
The narrator is in prison and tries to remember as much of the past as he can and fills his Memory Palace cell with images representing memories.
