Edition of 100

This work was published in the prizewinning book Due to Lack of Interest Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled, that was published in 2015. In collaboration with graphic designer Michaël Snitker Sanne has made this book about the iconography of the Deep South of the U.S. The book project Due to Lack of Interest Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled deals with the universal fear of dying and with our desire to understand and bridge the gap between ourselves and the unknown. We try to fill this potentially dangerous conceptual void with — amongst several other things — storytelling, science, art and religion. Peper uses some of these to try to comprehend and make visible something fictional and immaterial. 

This publication is part of a larger work in progress. It’s the provisional outcome of a project that has taken quite a while to find its final destination. Peper tends to do that – she reads, researches and photographs a subject so extensively that it becomes a challenge to distinguish its essentials. Like with kudzu, an invasive vine that covers large parts of the southern states and kills everything in its path, she gets entangled in an information overload.
