A novel on stickers

Implementation Sex and terror all over the world: The eighth and final installment of a novel, printed out on stickers and placed in public by readers, is now available, along with more than 1000 photos of pieces of the novel in place. It's a distributed narrative in the vein of Shelly Jackson's Skin, a word of which is tattooed on 2000 people. One of the co-authors also co-wrote 2002: A Palindrome Story.

Vandalism is vandalism, regardless of how creative you are.

Thanks for the links ubueditor. I'd never heard of this project and am pretty fascinated with different delivery modes for the written word.

I also find this quite compelling, thanks. I remember a number of website authors (who would probably be called bloggers in this day and age) played around with the idea of posting long stories in people's online guestbooks -- a paragraph here, a paragraph there. Presumably they'd link one entry to the next, although perhaps not.

Ooh, I've stuck quite a few stickers of this project on walls and lampposts and round about, and had a lot of fun with it. Cool to see it Metafiltered!
