’s book Acoustic Thought
is a poetic exegesis of the Gospel of Thomas: an apocryphal gospel found at Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt in 1945, containing 114 sayings of Jesus. According to Mihaylova, the Gospel of Thomas "is a poem that listens, where the written is not simply the record of a voice but a radically different dimension of cognition that emerges as an acoustic realm in the formation of thoughts."
The book includes new texts written by Snejanka Mihaylova
, ‘A Score for Six Voices’ by Lisa Holmqvist, and is illustrated with photographs by Jeff Weber made during a research period at the project space Beirut, Cairo. The work was commissioned by If I Can’t Dance as part of Edition V – Appropriation and Dedication (2013–2014).
