Reading Room: Meeting the Universe Halfway is a collection of five booklets that came out of a multi-sensory project created by Harriet Plewis. The project attempted to make sense of a key text by theoretical physicist and feminist theorist Karen Barad.
The volume contains one booklet describing the ideas, experiments and practices of expanded reading in reference to Barad’s text. The remaining four booklets, however, are workbooks. These entries function as manuals, to help people replicate or expand on the ideas themselves. The books were produced by the artist in collaboration with Sam Whetton and Chery Styles.
