Slices of book 


Slicing the text
Here’s one from Geoffrey Rockwell’s photoset entitled “Text in the machine”. He poses the questions: “What if we treat pages as matter? What if we paste pages together and then carve, saw, sand and drill them like wood?” This is a kind of deconstruction Derrida never imagined when he wrote: “the form of the book is now going through a period of general upheaval […]…one cannot tamper with it without disturbing everything else…” (1997:3). Ah well, it’s all disturbed now (thanks Geoffrey).
