Danielle McCullough
Ring Out Wild Bells! zine

Danielle writes of this zine:
"In this book, I have memorialized the gestures of distracted clerical workers, myself included, who have inadvertently inserted ourselves into the historical archive as embodied mistakes --disrupting the seamless translation of public domain texts into digital commodities as we insert our fingers into the margins. During breaks in my work at a library I've scanned a 1901 version of Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem "In Memoriam" and inserted a parallel message in American Sign Language.  This finger spelling interprets notes of encouragement, taken from the Tennyson poem and Naomi Klein's address to the Occupy Wall Street movement."
