Scrapbooks

Inspired by the collagist impulse found in those anonymous vintage scrapbooks one finds at flea markets.

"Girl Anarchist Explodes Bomb"

A novella in couplets made in 2018, culled from crumbly old newspapers. A sampling of the pages shown here; full text linked below.

“Faced with an unprecedented amount of available text, the problem is not needing to write more of it; instead, we must learn to negotiate the vast quantity that exists. How I make my way through this thicket of information—how I manage it, how I parse it, how I organize and distribute it—is what distinguishes my writing from yours." (Kenneth Goldsmith, Uncreative Writing, NY: Columbia U P, 2011, p. 1)

"book of twins"

I’m preoccupied with binaries, twins, couplets. In middle school I was transfixed by Robert Jastrow's description of  binary star systems in Red Giants and White Dwarfs. Korean royal astronomers first recorded these pairings 600 years ago in Calculations of the Seven Luminaries. Gravitational pulls. Couplings, found and lost. Made in 2017.

"book of nets"

An improvisational and mostly wordless narrative involving  caves, bridge-building, Jules Verne, timelines, camouflage, the big bang, event horizons, and Hieronymus Bosch's "The Wood Has Ears, the Field Eyes." Made in 2017.
