This photographic project is a based on twentieth century writer Franz Kafka’s work Der Prozess [Eng. trans. The Trial]; a book I return to again, and again. A series of mural size colour photographs form this project. Rather than attempting to represent or form a visual adaptation of the text, these photographs focus on the affects of Kafka’s work. Deleuze and Guattari focus on Kafka’s use of language in their joint book Kafka: Towards A Minor Literature, where they see Kafka’s use of the German language as a way of ‘constructing a continuum of variation, negotiating all of the variables’ in order to ‘make it “wail”, stretch tensors through all of language, even written language, and draw from it cries, shouts, pitches, durations, timbres, accents, intensities’ (Deleuze and Guattari 1975/1986 115). These intensities are at the heart of my project, and the connected project, Das Schloss.
