Sagen Sagen, written by Samuel Weidmann, contains findings, views and insights, solutions to current and future problems, questions, propositions and new findings and vignettes of everyday life. On 108 pages the reader is confronted with sentences that can be easily integrated in almost every conversation. Unfortunately, reading a book is traditionally a solitary thing. By translating Sagen Sagen to the World Wide Web, the sharing-machine per se, Transform aspires to overcome the book’s inherent limitations.
Sagen Sagen manifests itself in three different forms:
As a conventional book that is as economically produced as it is offered for sale. The book can easily be carried around and given away. A first step to sharing its contents.As an online video archive on www.sagensagen.ch. A variety of personalities read the sentences and the resulting short video clips can be shared on social media or via mail. By doing this, the sentences can situationally be brought into orbit. You feel like your friend’s car color matches his personality? Tell him by sending a short video clip from the website.
As a daily WhatsApp-Newsletter that lets the subscriber daily receive one of the book’s sentences as a moving image – directly send to the smartphone. Consequently, the sentences and video clips are integrated in the subscriber’s individual video archives and can be used, like GIFs, as possible reactions in conversations.
