After something of a break, I seem to have looped back to my old interest - the strange interrelations of text, space, and reading. Emma Cocker's Blog 'Not Yet There' always has something new and...well, closer, to offer. This image, entitled Close Reading (G.D. T.F. 1993) is part of an ongoing series that investigates the practice of close reading or of an ‘explication de texte’ as a critical tool for destabilizing language, for breaking up the linear unfolding of language into discontinuous fragments. Close Reading performs a close reading of Gilles Deleuze, The Fold, 1993, in an attempt to render the text itself as an unfolding of pleats and stutters.
