The Japanese Kunizo Matsumoto cannot read nor write, yet he has invented a form of writing that is both beautiful and enigmatic. The American George Widener, who is capable of memorizing events of the last 1,500 years, can also predict the future, which he inscribes in his “magic squares.“ Fernand Desmoulin, a French engraver, draws with no light while the “spirits“ guide his hand. The Czech Zdenek Kosek sits for weeks, looking through his window, with no food or sleep. In his notebook he records all sounds and movements around him, fearing that if he stops, the world would cease to exist.
