The image of text

For the past few years Helen Mirra's writing has been in the form of the index. Dislocated from a source text, the entries point out into the world at large. This volume relies upon John Dewey's "Reconstruction in Philosophy" (1920). While Dewey's book is largely about the conceptualization of ideas, Mirra's project is a materialization of conceptualization, under the auspices of a spare poetics.

With an afterword by Lyn Hejinian.

Helen Mirra (*1970) makes work in varied scrap media, and teaches at Harvard University.

The publication is part of the series of artists' projects edited by Christoph Keller.
