Work-in-Progress: Digital Response to Mayer’s “Experiments”

I’ve been working on a digital┬áresponse┬áto Bernadette Mayer’s Experiments article. In this piece, I use erasure to remove portions of the tet to create new meanings and contexts, all the time using the same ‘material’ textual units (i.e. not dynamically rewriting the text, but removing text). As such, I’m trying to think about how textual economy and marking of texts can be explored on screen. That said, this was done on paper first…!

Check out my progress so far by clicking on the link (click on the REMOVE link at the bottom of the piece to activate the erasure):

UPDATE 29 April: The complete piece will be appearing in a forthcoming Drunken Boat issue, so for now, I need to take it down. I will post an alert when it’s finally published.
