ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING LETTERS Since I was very young, until my early thirties, I had serious problems in opening and reading any letters I received. Letters would stay on my table for weeks before I found the courage to open them, and during this time my sense of guilt would grow and grow. Most of the time, when I finally opened the letters, it was too late to answer them and my sense of guilt was worse than ever. I kept every single letter, from the first notes received from my mother, in 1965, up to the time I left ...

This conversation addresses an important aspect of Merve Bedir’s work (along with Jason Hilgefort at Land+Civilization Compositions) regarding the architectural and linguistic dimension of Turkish politics regarding the 2.5 million refugees the country currently “hosts”—the very notions of “host” and “guest” are the first things discussed here. Through the description of several sites of either appropriation or dispossession/detention by and of refugee bodies in Istanbul and in other regions of Turkey, we try to think of the architect’s political role and responsibility, remembering however that we must always doubt of our own actions when they have such drastic consequences. Merve Bedir ...

Based on 150 characters contained within a single phrase, Alexander May has transcribed each character onto linoleum engravings to create a set of unique prints for each letter and stretching this text across the bound parameters of a onestar press book. By the artist’s hand, this investigation focuses upon the economy of the printed page—the space and value of content—expanding past the limitations of a single phrase upon the page.

A tale of a maiden or two + an animal streak is the sister action piece to Lawrence Weiner’s 1996 book, A Tale Of A Maiden Or Two, which features the phrase, “They say there was in the twentieth century a philosophy that believed that each girl was unique & alone in an indifferent & often hostile world.” This version presents what appear to be song titles on a background of close-up pixilated black and white lines next to images of art, advertising and mass media collages.

Afronik N’ko font is a display font supporting only the N’ko alphabet used to write Manding languages of West Africa. Souleymane Kanté created the N’Ko (ߒߞߏ – N’Ko) alphabet in 1949 to suit the sounds of the Mande languages — including Mandika, Dyula, Bambara and related languages.Neither the Latin nor the Arabic characters have enough breadth to encompass the nuances of African speech. Both writing systems lack symbols for some of the phonology, in particular the subtle but distinct tonalities. When transcribed with the foreign scripts, which have no adequate way of marking precise vowel tones, the meanings of words can ...

An essay on the artwork of Ivana Spinelli, published on the occasion of her solo show Contropelo at Gallleriapiù, Bologna (January 23 – March 28, 2020). “Ivana Spinelli suggests a different look into the signs that are deposited in our collective memory as decorative elements lacking of any linguistic value. All of a sudden, those inscriptions manifest themselves as a code composed by discrete elements that can be used to form words and sentences, and take concrete shape as sculptural matter.” – Claudio Musso

I screamed and ran to smash my favorite slot machine. I said to Mabel, I said, ‘I wanted to write a romantic poem in the Schlegel sense of romantic poetry, so a novel in the Bakhtin sense of a novel, and it does that for me.

The Amme Talks is a conversation between poet and machine. In 2003, poet Ulf Stolterfoht and a chatbot named Amme (which means “wet nurse” in German) met in Berlin. For one week, Stolterfoht interrogated Amme: not just a chatbot, actually, but a steel-and-glass construction with a computer interface, which is connected to a glass of milk, a robotic arm that tips over the glass, and a tube that releases water, as if urinating. Stolterfoht asked Amme—the creation of artist Peter Dittmer—about the nature of authorship and the agency of language; he intended to turn the answers into an essay on poetics. ...
