H.P. Lovecraft’s Commonplace book, published after the author’s death, consists of 221 short ideas and sketches for weird fiction. In their lack of narrative outlines and prosaic structure, they appear almost more potent than they would be as long- form formal works. Karl Larsson’s Commonplace takes Lovecraft’s book as a starting point where fragments of horror, poetry, craft, CAD, waste, design, play, and climate change assemble in a book and an exhibition for TBA:15 where the unfinished idea, the formless form, and fear of what can never be fully grasped works as a methodological engine.
