COPPER LYRES IN RESIDENCE: TUCSON

I’m delighted to be spending the upcoming break in Tucson & environs for an extended period of further research into the scarring processes of copper extraction, smelting, milling, distribution, disposal and salvage—all the bust & boom of modern and contemporary device-life being somehow driven by this ductile metal and its laborers. The University of Arizona […]

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 […]
