Divided into 111 electrifying sections, Takashi Hiraide’s For the Fighting Spirit of the Walnut is a mix of detailed scientific observations, poetics, narrative, autobiography, rhetorical experiments, hyper-realistic images, and playful linguistic subversions – all scored with the precision of a mathematical-musical structure.
