The Decameron

By k - 22:37

I will post a video each day documenting my thoughts, dreams, and anxieties until I have posted 100.

This project is named The Decameron after the collection of 14-century Italian novellas by Giovanni Boccaccio. Boccaccio created a fictional framing device that brings together tales from 10 people sheltering in a secluded villa outside of Florence to escape the Black Death. Each evening, each member of the party tells one story, except for one day per week for chores and for holy days. In total the group compiles 100 stories, ranging from tragic to comic to erotic.
