New York: Granary Books, 1993. Quarto. Bound in perforated metal sheeting with wire mesh and plastic film endleaves. Illustrations and center-fold pop-up. Fine in metallic finish slipcase. First edition of the artist's realization in book form of her 1990 installation. One of fifty numbered copies, in addition to ten hors commerce copies and 6 extra copies for the Borowsky Center. The work was printed by offset in several shades of metallic ink by Lori Spencer on both transparent and opaque stocks, and was bound by Daniel Kelm at Wide Awake Garage. MESMER "was conceived at the intersection of the birth of psychoanalysis, the origins of cinema and the transformations of the industrial revolution. It is a 'philosophical toy' which makes reference to those machines which were the precursors of cinema and to the gothic novel, a genre which helped give this piece its form and is itself the precursor of science fiction" - Artist's web site commentary.
