The Hand’s Collapse: Industrial Injuries of Writing and the Instrumental Metaphor of Method / Logos. 2017. № 6 (121). P. 23-58
annotation:  The article discusses the gestural nature of the act of writing: how this act occurs and is experienced, which materials are involved in or provoke the gesture, and finally the (oftentimes traumatic) consequences caused by these media-anthropological assemblages. At the intersection of the individual gestural phantasm and some exact materiality of writing of a particular historical epoch, some heterogeneous and always unstable writing tool or device would emerge. Along with briefly outlining the theoretical foundation for this model of equating writing tools with different instruments (and corresponding actions), the article analyses a number of concrete examples of such instrumental assemblages and the types of negotiations, concessions and conflicts (breakdowns and injuries) that occurred between the materiality and anthropology of writing. The first part of the article discusses industrial gestures and traumas of writing, always having to do with the shortcomings of the medium and some corresponding manual effort (and, consequently, hand injury and maladies). The article analyses the cases of Robert Walser’s expansive writing and “writing cramps,” along with Stéphane Mallarmé’s “axiomatic” gesture of throwing dice. The second part of the article analyses the largely reading-related post-industrial gestures of writing (thus focusing on movements of eyes, not hands). The latter emerges through the information overload experienced by writers and researchers from the beginning of the 20th century: the article analyses the “continuous partial attention” and “reading at” texts developed in Gertrude Stein’s writings, as well as the latest plastics and optics of the humanities in Franco Moretti’s distant reading method.
