Taking inspiration from the increasing value of live events and our continued love affair with the printed word, Book Kernel brings together the affordances of digital and physical to create a record of a moment in time. It incorporates selected content, social media interaction and conversation into a curated personal memento for you to take home. Creative agency Hodcha worked with Alexis Nuselovici of Cardiff University to explore how theories of translation can apply to cross-platform media. They prototyped the model through the publishing of The Dylan Thomas Book Kernel at a live poetry translation event in Swansea and have gone on to make books of conferences, festivals and concerts.
