VENICE IN TOKYO
VENICE IN TOKYO

I’m thrilled to be giving a lecture on Venice in another archipelago, one inhabited a couple of decades back—at Hitotsubashi University, hosted by Professor Mayumo Inoue, with respondents Ryosuke Yamazaki and Akiko Ichikawa. July 14, 2016, a Thursday, in the afternoon.

NURSING FUTURISM
NURSING FUTURISM

My last post for Harriet, “Nursing Futurism,” reads the figure of the nurse as a confessional supplement to the manifestos of Futurism, and presents some nurses of hope in the form of Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik’s Commons Choir, and Pepe Rojo’s Tijuana Liberation Front.

MATERIALITY OF POETRY IN THE AGE OF DIGITAL REPRODUCTION
MATERIALITY OF POETRY IN THE AGE OF DIGITAL REPRODUCTION

My fourth text for Harriet: The Blog, “Aeolian Harping: Materiality of Poetry in the Age of Digital Reproduction & Ecoprecarity,” is the beginning of a new project on rethinking the supposed dematerialization of the art object, and the supposed greenness of our current communicative channels: “What species of political and ethical complicity must we reckon […]

LAGUNA AS ARCHIVE IN MAKE MAG
LAGUNA AS ARCHIVE IN MAKE MAG

Nathanaël and I are writing together about lagoons and/as archives—that “each book occupies, for me, the place of a memory loss….” makes for the initial traces of that conversation, here and in the print version of MAKE Magazine #16:

GUSH, TOUCHSTONE: VENICE
GUSH, TOUCHSTONE: VENICE

On November 9 at noon, at Penn State (in 102 Kern), I’ll be giving a talk titled “From Corpse to Specter: Venice as Antagonist and Emblem of Modernity.” There will be lunch! When in 1910, F.T. Marinetti and comrades airbombed crowds with 800,000 copies of the Futurist manifesto “Against Passéist Venice” from the Clock Tower […]

WUHO INSTITUTE OPEN LABS: FINISSAGE

For the summer of 2015, the WUHO Gallery on Hollywood Boulevard has been transformed by the Institute into an open laboratory. Work on emerging spatial environments has generated salons, workshops, performances, and rituals by residents, rogue scientists, and radical philologists. See the outcomes and their byproducts on the last night of Open Laboratories: The Grand […]

ONE MAN’S VERDANT PORTICO
ONE MAN'S VERDANT PORTICO

Is another man’s mortar: from Hadrian to Maxentius along the Appian Way, frescoed sea-horse becomes filler for an unfinished throne room wall. Our archaeological Virgil through it all (drawings, lacunae-riddled plans, 3D scanners, holes full of dirt and equivocal chunks) enjoying his job exactly as much as one reckons he oughta.    

ANIMATE STATUARY
ANIMATE STATUARY

At the Villa Medici: from Paris to the Pincio, perfect coherence of voluptuousness in stone embraced otherwise, alive.

ETERNAL/EPHEMERAL
ETERNAL/EPHEMERAL

In the lurid purple apparition of the Ponte Rotto and cherished summer passeggiata schmaltz, resisting the surreptitious yet certain sense of possibilities clamping down with the passage of the weeks and the neighbors, even if the morning, recall pixelessly, among the myriad possible pixeless lessons of the year of explosive potential in love with the […]

Nature once again reflecting culture, making its own vertigo and mask for a friend in what remains of the ingeniously experimental Greek baths.

WORLD CITY (HENDRIK ANDERSEN, ARDOR)
WORLD CITY (HENDRIK ANDERSEN, ARDOR)

Henry James ardently to the friend (lover?) Hendrik Christian Andersen, coaxing his companion toward specific lived experiences and places, expressing doubt regarding “any use on all the made earth … for a ready-made city, made-while-one-waits, as they say, & which is the more preposterous & the more delirious, the more elaborate & the more ‘complete’ […]

TRAGEDIA DELL’ASCOLTO/TRAGEDY OF LISTENING
TRAGEDIA DELL'ASCOLTO/TRAGEDY OF LISTENING

“Now that’s quite a responsibility,” says Kathleen, deathly serious from the Piazza San Cosimato, as I tell her of the site of the sound piece in progress. All day spent in the dark tavern carving bypasses of voices from the literal underground. Carving from the blindness resulting from the hegemony of vision in this culture, […]

CROSS-SPECIES COMMUNICATION, ITALIAN STYLE
CROSS-SPECIES COMMUNICATION, ITALIAN STYLE

Michele uses his excellent skills as translator, poet, and Italian (c.f. Bruno Munari’s dictionary of Italian gestures) to communicate with a cat atop the castle complex who is fond of quizzical self-exposure.

THE HOUSE EXPOSED E DOPO
THE HOUSE EXPOSED E DOPO

How the writing of Marco Giovenale and other current Italian “poetry of research” can and has to be distinguished from Flarf, with which it identifies (to a certain extent): history.

USCITA 43/EXIT 43

The introduction to our performance at Corto Circuito tonight, in Italian: Queste partiture “pop-up” fanno parte di un progetto in corso, intitolato Uscita 43, che è composto di elementi poetici, visivi, e sonori. Lo descrivo come un’archeologia di paesaggi tossici e afflitti, e un’operetta di cori “pop-up” (prendendo il termine usato per le finestre “pop-up” […]

ET Ἀρκαδία IN ACADEMIA OR ARCADIA, ERGO EGO

Just in time for the Poussin exhibit and a much-planned chilled coffee at the expensively bucolic Caffé Greco, the antique dealer’s daughter’s dealt a last-minute invitation to the Enlightenment-era academy of Arcadians you could tumble into down this hill were it not for the security cameras: where one isn’t sure what’s Rome and what reproduction, […]
