The Book As Experimental Form, Emergent Structure (live action test-drive)

Following on from Tan Lin’s (not to be confused with Tao Lin) ambient novels, Chris Caines and Zoë Sadokierski’s durational media objects, and Lisa Robertson’s notion of a soft architecture, this experimental, collaborative and procedural workshop will set out to make a book under the given constraints: a time, a place, a set of materials, a group of people, a collection of concepts, the gentle tugs of translation.

At the end of the session a set of texts and paratexts made under the auspices of the event will be finished, published and distributed as a collective work. The question of labour will underscore our shared effort.
