What is Butterflies and Sand? Generated by a PHP script every season, each version of the book gathers a totally random collection of haiku from those tweeted by the author. Random section titles are drawn together with random images, and followed by a small assembly of verses. The reader is left to discover the links for themselves. Further sections provide alternative forms of randomness, along with all of the haiku tweeted since the previous version of the book.
The aim of the book is to generate new meaning from haiku which were originally separate, with something of a nod to old surrealist games on one hand, and notions of divination on the other. Each book means something different to each reader, including the author (who is reading each issue for the first time too.)
