Page Muster Habit 2 2013

Mark Leahy 

Muster Page Habit 2 proposes an intersection of speech, thought and vocalisation that teases together a sensing of language as speaking through the body, that performs a talking that is thrown from the speaker outwards to a public/for a public/making public in the hope of hearing by hearers. 

The project considers agency and subjecthood as audited in textual representation. Tracking through word and sound it crosses Beckett’s Lucky, the novels of Christine Brooke-Rose, William James’ on consciousness, essays of Heinrich von Kleist, and Avital Ronell’s Telephone Book.
