my writing of infinite depth
=========================================================================
my writing is my most important medium. it lacks the seduction of image
and sound, of performance and the smell of bodies; it lacks the arousal
accompanying the dreams or deliriums of the residue of flesh. instead,
there is always a substitution: that of the body flailing behind the
horse-drawn cart, bouncing from field to field, until not even the bones
are left, just the broken skein of tissues that once harbored thought.
it's here in this delirium that thought is born, out of exigency, out of
urgency, before its disappearance into the lost furniture of the world.
but it's where depth occurs in my work; nowhere else are wonder and beauty

ear smarks

a 'smark' is a 'smeared mark' generally made by an ear or forehead
placed against a plate-glass gallery window; it is produced when
(on the occasion of) a subject attempts to listen or view the
sounds or sights within. numerous smarks create a layered smear-
domain_ which is an apparatus for the transmission of bacterial or
viral agents between viewers and / or listeners. the result is an
extremely simple means of epidemic creation, which may be summarized
as the lure-share technique. in other words, come see and hear my
beautiful gift to you - an amazing delight - a delicacy - and catch
the deadly migraine-flu!
