West Coast Post-Journal w/Bad Camera Phone #2

James Yeary

Look, maybe you should find Portland based James Yeary and ask him for a copy of his serial chapbook essay. It’s pretty damn good and entirely compelling.   Quote:

“The end of the topological wor(l)d anticipates a present wherein the printed word + world is readapted to reflect our World Picture’s formerly planar -change, reflecting the Subject’s anxiety of presence. Information is no more “fixed” in space than she is.  Position only determined by relation to other objects, all of which are CONCRETIONS of other objects, atoms, universes. This, in fact, calls for the ideogrammatic.”
This is mixed in with concrete poems which I have no way (and maybe no right?) to reproduce.  Either way, I continue to be convinced that thinking about space and place in concrete ways and concertizing this thinking is a big job that needs doing. Thanks James!
