One-Way Street: An Index

A collection of 13 indexes to Walter Benjamin's 1928 writing One-Way Street. The indexes play on Wallace Stevens’s famous poem “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird,” each one approaching One-Way Street from a different angle. They catalogue recurring topical, sensory, and poetic elements of Benjamin’s text, making imagistic lists that illuminate the variety of ways a reader might navigate a text according to her own preoccupations. The publication is displayed here along with Benjamin's original text and a few accompanying hand-drawn quotations pulled from his collected writings.
