Abstract

Description

135 unnumbered pages : illustrations ; 4 x 9 cm Artist's statement: "Flip Read uses the book form to explore the experience of lip reading. The book aims to challenge the hearing person's perceptions and assumptions about how we construct our verbal and visual world and how we make sense of the information available to us. It employs the naturally 'silent' and yet verbal domain of the book, as well as the variable pace that the reader can impose on the pages to assist their understanding. The statement of the speaker is not revealed within the book, leaving a doubt in the reader's mind over whether they have understood as much as can be understood. The actual spoken statement is: 'How would you cope with the volume turned off?'" Edition of 150 copies. Call number: SPL N7433.4.W47 F55 2005
