Craig Dworkin's project for the Free Biennial is to establish what media
theorist Friedrich Kittler calls "aufschriebesysteme," or "discourse
networks." The texts of a series of poems, written especially for
the Free Biennial, will be organized architecturally: each of the occupants
in selected buildings will be called with one word of the poem and the
number of their neighbor, who will in turn be called with another word
and another number, and so on, matching the number of words in each poem
to the number of occupants in each building.
Craig Dworkin teaches at Princeton University. His chapbook "Index"
has just been published by housepress; "PARSE" is forthcoming
from Atelos Press; and his artist's book Signature-Effects is available
from Small Press Distribution. A critical volume, Reading the Illegible,
will be published later this spring by Northwestern University Press.
