Spring Snow - A Translation: Yukio Mishima

Spring Snow - A Translation: Yukio Mishima

      • Product Description: Alison Turnbull takes Japanese author Yukio Mishima's novel Spring Snow as a starting point to produce Spring Snow - A Translation, which is literally a visual translation ordered by colour. Drawing on Mishima's evocative use of colour in the novel, Turnbull condenses the narrative into a colour palette. Working from the English edition, she isolates and orders each of the more than six hundred colours as they appear in the text - what emerges is a visual essay on the nature of translation. In the introduction - which in turn is translated into Japanese - novelist Tony White creates a narrative remix of cut-ups from various sources, reflecting on Turnbull's work and its relationship to the life and work of Kimitake Hiraoka, also known as Yukio Mishima.
