FRIDAY LIT LINKS

hi friends,
the year is 1987, the setting is a 7-11 near disneyland. a big gulp costs 59 cents. the atmosphere is congenial and dream-like: “hey,” a couple of kids with a camera say, “we’re filming people in a 7-11. how are you doing tonight?” 
the lit is doing fine tonight. the lit knows scar-jo is post-human but lupita nyong’o loves her skin. 
and francine harris writes, “we are all sappy dad aren’t we?” Also: “I mom of you. I mom of you a lot.”
xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo,
the lit

FRIDAY LIT LINKS

hi friends,

much news this week: a new luxury apartment complex in bushwick is called Colony 1209. terrified by time and yet aware that it is money, the rich own watches.  thomas pynchon is asked to edit the simpons’ script. In crossing our “no wonder Homer is such a fat ass,” Pynchon writes: “Sorry guys, Homer is my role model and I won’t speak ill of him.” 
from emoji poems to liner notes to kustom kar kommados, this week’s lit links brings you no end of media saturation.  

for my mama with love, Zanele Muholi

Country Ball is the attempt to recreate a home video from the late 80’s of my family’s mother’s day cookout. My process involved looking for 35 of my mothers drawings that illustrated outdoor recreational utilities, then I trace my mothers drawings by hand onto the computer, import them into a 3D program: build them to create a computer generated landscape. I perform in front of the camera and green screen 100 times; later inserting those videos into the virtual space to create a Hieronymus Bosch “Garden of Earthly Delights” inspired landscape. This gesture is an attempt to use drawing, performance and technology as a device to translate and document a personal mythology.
