Axis of Observation II: Frank Gillette


Edited By Suzanne Anker and Sabine Flach

Spanning timeframes from 1967 to 2002, Frank Gillette’s essays included in this volume are concerned with the re-enchantment of the natural order. Employing several literary styles, from spon-taneous improvisation to a version of Gregory Bateson’s metalogue, Gillette’s writings are ruminations on symbolic and metaphorical reasoning. Containing pertinent images inserted after original essays, this compilation underscores Gillette’s thinking translated into words and visual media.
