Viva la Revolution
The earliest work by Amara Ko on this website, it was published in 2009. It is both a response to a bogged down and failing government in the heart of the recession (which occurred when the author was just out of university) and an unconscious effort by a young, untraveled artist to justify and rationalize the governmental and moral system she had been brought up to believe in.
Uniquely, Viva la Revolution is written in the style of a handwritten artists journal, utilizing an array of fonts and illustrations to illuminate the mood, meaning, and intent of the words. It is written in a style of casual candor with short allegories, poems, and asides breaking up the main narrative.
