Hit and Fall

This is part of the book 'The destructive character' written by Dick Raaijmakers. The Destructive Character is a commentary on an essay form 1931 by Walter Benjamin bearing the same title and included in this publication. In his reaction, Raaijmakers focuses on the fact that the destructive character knows of only one activity:  clearing away. 

Concept: This particular chapter of the book is investigating the development of hit and fall activities in Laurel & Hardy performances. The core idea of this mini publication was to create a feeling of the distance within the text, to recreate the moment of the fall (physical distance between two parts of text) and the actual hit (the movement that leads to making text as a whole again)
