Texture of Consciousness - Yair Meshoulam and Friends
Is this an Art Book?
Yes, because it assembles the art works of Yair Meshoulam and serves as an illustrated catalogue of his work to date. No, because it is an interface between art and text, where text is both language and image. In Yair Meshoulam’s Time is a Texture of Consciousness, the text is texture. No, because it includes poems by Ruth Fainlight and texts written by friends where consciousness is explored in all its facets, from the intense subjectivity of the Locked-in Syndrome to its absence in Thoughts without a Thinker.
So what is this book?
It is a texture of consciousness
