Text in the Machine

from a series of images by Geoffrey Rockwell. Working on a book, literally.

Painful to watch or as shawnday says in the comments:
This is multimedia in the old sense where you try to make art out of other media. The interesting thing is how we have been socialized to think of books as sacred objects that shouldn’t be cut, marked, or otherwise deformed.

And Guy from my vedana:

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
