Maya Deren in Her Own Words
“Maya Deren – In Her Own Words, ” the last remaining exemplars of a silkscreen print with hand-made ink from historic pigments by Eric K. Lerner. The image is entirely composed of letters from a memorable quote from Deren and derived from a sequence in Deren’s Rituals in Transfigured Time.
“If the earth is a sphere, then the abyss below the earth is also its heavens; and the difference between them is no more than time, the time of the earth’s turning. If the earth is a vast horizontal surface reflecting, invisibly, even for each man his own proper soul, then again, the abyss below the earth is also its heavens; and the difference between them is time, the time of an eye lifting and dropping. The sun-door and the tree-root are the same thing in the same place, seen now from below and now from above and named by the seer, for the moment of seeing."
