Last week was such a busy one for me that I forgot to mention that I was giving a lecture at Co-Prosperity Sphere. This was part of a mini-symposium organized by Lily Robert-Foley, Location/Location: The Mistranslation of Objects, which was part of the show Field Static, curated by Caroline Picard and Devin King. The other symposium participants were Meredith Kooi, Laura Goldstein & Brett Balogh, Gene Tanta, and T. Siddle.
I had promised to talk about “Conceptual Writing’s Aesthetic and Political Commitments,” but instead I presented two of my recent HTMLGIANT “generating text” posts: “The Spell Check Technique” and “Dictionary Expansions.” You can see photos from the event here.
Field Static will be up through 13 June, and includes work by Rebecca Mir, Carrie Gundersdorf, Heather Mekkelson, Ellen Rothenberg, Stephen Lapthisophon, Christian Kuras, Duncan MacKenzie, Mark Booth, and my former roommate Justin Cabrillos. Co-Prosperity Sphere is open on Sundays from 1-4 and by appointment.
Thanks, Lily, Caroline, and Devin! And congrats, Caroline & Devin! I still think you should hyphenate your surnames: “King Picard”!
