A collaboration with the Danish artist Linda Hilfing, on a ”complete index of all elements leading to the end of the world”.
In 1999, when the fear of the ”millenium bug” was at its peak, a reader of the christian, conservative magazine End Time, deviced a numerological code, through which the word ”computer” translated to the number 666, thus proving the machine to be a satanic tool for the destruction of our world.
By translating this alogorithm to a generative computer code that sifts through the internet for other ”satanic” elements, Hilfing creates a continuously updating index over such potentially harmful elements.
As indicated by the title, Rojal is bound by a contract with the artist to produce a new edition of this encyclopedia, containing 666 posts, once a year for eternal time.

Rojal

Rojal is a publishing project started in the spring of 2014 by the book binder and artist Olle Essvik, and the translator and artist Joel Nordqvist ­– for experiments, collaborations, discoveries and distribution of narratives, ideas, objects and images, that have been lost and forgotten, or deemed unfit for larger editions or conventional formats. Based in a workshop in Gothenburg, Sweden, we produce and publish everything from artists books, to photo books, multiples, computer games, theory and fiction, in small, carefully designed and handcrafted editions.
