B, tiny arkhive: for Adeena Karasick
Since Adeena Karasick is so much a part of this Banff/blog/collaborative/shmata-shma'atta experience I thought I'd share a token I made for her a few years ago, when I was writing a presentation on her book Dyssemia Sleaze for a conference at University of Alberta on archiving the modern, or something like that. There's a picture in the poem "The Wall," centerpiece of DS, an Avedon photo of a man with bees swarming all over him. Very disturbing. I learned from Adeena's Kabbalah studies that B, Beit, is a house (archive), and as second letter of the alphabet, is sort of a female (but not in an absolute sense) principle, breath, etc. So I made this little Beit, a bee-hive ark-hive of scriptural activity.
