some inscriptions we made up (2007)

130 x 220mm, edition of 10, found pages inscribed by hand with pen, pencil and pencil crayon, bound by hand.

some inscriptions we made up is a companion to the book some inscriptions. In this edition Carson & Miller write imaginary dedications inscribed on pages excised from real books. some inscriptions we made up frames within the page a frozen moment in the narrative of a fictional or half-remembered relationship. In “falsely” claiming the page, Carson & Miller further their exploration of the book as a container for memory whilst investigating the nature of memory itself – as something that can blur what is real and what is imagined.
