Change the name of the days est un livre d’artiste conçu par l’artiste américain David Horvitz. Trente-deux leçons et courtes unités d’enseignement ont été élaborées par David Horvitz, artiste et père, avec l’aide de sa fille de 5 ans.

Dans la tradition des livres d’action conceptuels, David Horvitz a créé un long poème nous invitant à plonger dans les profondeurs de l’imaginaire. Jouer et apprendre avec la notion de « guide someone through the sounds of the world around you » et découvrir l’immatérialité des éléments qui constituent le monde.

De « welcome the night into your house » en passant par « exchange breaths with
a plant », cette publication de JBE Books, en association avec Yvon Lambert, est aussi l’occasion de développer une action performative pour chaque leçon et de constituer sa propre collection personnelle d’instruments poétiques.

Le livre est enrichi d’un texte de Natilee Harren, chercheuse et spécialiste Fluxus
