I have a contribution in Triple Canopy’s Call and Response. My contribution came from Rebecca Solnit’s River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West:
Michael Andrews / Paul Chan / Matthew Conners / Nancy Davenport / Edie Fake / Rainer Ganahl / Rico Gatson / Andrea Geyer / Maryam Monalisa Gharavi / Adam Helms / David Horvitz / Dan Hoy / Tim Kinsella / Isla Leaver-Yap / Zoe Leonard / China Miéville / Eileen Myles / Matteo Pasquinelli / Kristina Lee Podesva / Ariana Reines / Zach and Gabe Rockhill / Steve Roden / Christine Smallwood / Ben Tausig / Marvin J. Taylor / Temporary Services / Ultra-red / WAGE (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) / Evan Calder Williams / Erik Wysocan / Anicka Yi
Contradictions (pasted from Triple Canopy’s introduction):
There’s already a sense, for us, that the Occupy survey which follows is out of place, belated. We asked for submissions before Thanksgiving of last year, circa the Zuccotti Park eviction. But we knew we’d come late to things, or others would arrive on the dot; so we asked writers, artists, musicians, for materials from the past that might be material for the future. This winter, consensus: Now’s the time to get real (practical, pragmatic). But we’d like to think reality, or possibility, is more capacious than that, can admit more than an American election cycle. “Don’t let other countries win the race for the future.” We’d prefer not to. We’d stay right here. Do we contradict ourselves? Very well. Whitman’s multitudes, Melville’s intransigent, contra immiseration and crisis. We have our resources and we will have theirs.
