I'll be doing a performance at the Ed Varie booth (Q-50) on Saturday, September 29th, 1 - 3pm at the NY Art Book Fair.

The piece is a live transposition of the poem Ten Ten Two, from the publication what tends apart, repeating over the course of two hours in silver drawing ink. Each copy of the poem differs from one another, inevitably from the incidental fall and stroke of the brush, and by chance alterations in wording and their placement on the page. The transposition then becomes an act of re-publishing by hand, to take apart the initial arrangement and create brief durations to renew the poem by way of inheritance and response.
