miranda july’s perfect, rule-breaking website

Miranda July

Miranda July

Miranda July is a filmmaker, artist and writer whose work has been presented at many amazing venues like Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim Museum and The Whitney Biennale. We’re started to check out her work having been knocked out a really funny, charming, completely unexpected website she made about one of her books, No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories. It breaks every rule of website-making like allowing you to navigate back to HOME whenever you want to, and saying right up front what is going on, and having completely thought-out pages. July’s doesn’t do any of that. Hers is a journey of sorts that manages to tell the inside of what it’s like to do anything creative, of PROCESS (real but unheavy). In it’s linear way it delivers potent, completely unlinear, many-layered message.

July forged her website in two parts over the course of a year or so. The official URL starts at the second part; it will take you back to the beginning if you want, and the beginning is really fun…

Here are our favorite pages (it doesn’t give anything away to show them; the website itself is the trip)….

    Of course , it was just a question of time befor i’d stumble upon a post about Miranda July here – i love her approach to creativity .
    A friend of mine gave me the book , No One Belongs Here More Than You , shortly before i went home for the first time . The title alone is great , that pink book was with me the whole journey, like it said all .
    It’s been a while ..

    Thank you, again, for the reminder,
    sahana
