Mark Z. Danielewski’s “House of Leaves,” interpreted by Aaron Bir

5 Aug

This time around we decided to translate scenes from our favorite prose books into comics. I decided to challenge myself and attempt a passage from “House of Leaves” by Mark Z. Danielewski.

If you’re not familiar, the novel is one the most disturbing books I’ve ever read. This isn’t due to any overt grossness or ickiness. I found the tale about a book,  which is about a film, which in itself is about a very peculiar house (as edited by a protagonist, who is most likely mad) to challenge my perception of the boundaries between story and reality.

Danielewski never let me forget I was reading a book, yet he defied the normal terms in which a prose story is presented visually.

I’m presenting an interpretation of a scene from chapter five. This starts with the first exploration a hallway that has suddenly and surprisingly appeared in, the photo-journalist, Navidson’s home..

THERE IS FEMALE NUDITY IN THIS COMIC. IF YOU’RE OPPOSED TO THAT SORT OF THING, STOP NOW.
