Ann Hamilton's books used in Indigo Blue and Tropos performances/installations

Indigo Blue, 1991

The figure in performance sat reading the books back to front, clearing each page, by a gesture of wetting a Pink Pearl eraser with saliva, rubbing out a line of text, and collecting the rubber eraser crumbs in a line parallel to the uppermost edge of the book and the front of the desk.

Tropos, 1993

…With an electric burner in hand, (she) burned each line from the book, as it was read, causing the air to fill with acrid smoke.
