Influxstructure: A Topography of Ghosts
Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder
Art Library Rare Books Collection N7433.4.S377 I54 2018

Edition of 25 copies, signed and numbered by the artist. Art Library has copy 10. Influxstructure: A Topography of Ghosts explores macro and micro human systems (both natural and artificial), and how we use the earth and our bodies to communicate and navigate space. When the book is closed, iron filings in the glass case are gathered in a tightly closed circle around a hidden magnet. When the book is open, the iron filings fall away from the magnet and scatter into formless dust. The map-fold variation structure allows images to be peeled back layer by layer, alternating between the miniscule (synapses, nerves, veins), to the immense (Nazca lines, US Highway systems, Atomic bomb test site). Holes in pages peek through to highlight the interconnectedness of the systems. Text alternates from prose poems to cited research. Images and text created on a Poco Proof Press through a combination of pressure prints with pochoir, and text printed from photo-polymer plates on Hahnemuhle Ingres and Uda-gami paper. Typeset in Diotima designed by Gudrun Zapf-von Hesse. "—Artist's statement
