This chapter presents several fragments that were written at the invitation of Australian artist Elizabeth Presa. Presa was inspired by Derrida's text, ‘Un ver à soie’. These fragments were used in her exhibit, ‘A Silk Room of One's Own’, and featured displays of live silkworms that hatched and developed over the duration of the exhibit.
