Making Figures

Reimagining Body, Sound, and Image in a World That Is Not for Us
Bruce Bromley

As a species and as a culture, we recognize ourselves by our capacity for possession, so that personhood is made equivalent to ownership. If, however, the way in which we imagine objects predisposes our behavior toward them, art can encourage us to reorient how we comport ourselves in a world that is not meant to be owned, that is not even meant for us. To frustrate the desolation of avarice, we must enrich our view of things, and Making FIgures takes us through the writing of Virginia Woolf, both her fiction and nonfiction, in the service of this imperative.
