“Consciously or not, the ownership of bookshelves is a constantly active licence for addition, arrangement and removal—the processes of editing inherent in the making of books themselves.”

42 samples of “writing & readings” produced between 1991 and 2002, reflective and critical essays on books, bookmaking, and writing as well as experimental texts created by indexing, recording, transcribing, formatting, rearranging words from a variety of sources (radio programmes, overheard conversations, musical scores, books and more); the result is a series of textworks that exist somewhere between textual and visual art (rather like concrete poems) and illustrate the transformative processes of adaptation, rearrangement and transposition.
