i am in fact sad
i am in fact sad
the world crumbles as i pick up the pieces
& put them back on my yacht
dissolving into nothingness
disappearing before my very eyes
people getting crunk in my stead
me, sad or quite possibly sadder
when the sorrow engulfs me
when my feet drag & cant be picked up
you can find me in the harbor
ever so slowly giving up
In honor of National Poetry Month, follow http://30xlace.tumblr.com:
"30 poets over 30 days in honor of National Poetry Month, curated by Carrie Murphy & Birds of Lace. For 2014, we’ve created a series of poetry “chain letters,” in which we asked poets to share a poem and also ‘tag’ the name of another poet who then shares their own poem, and so on."
TRIPLE CANOPY’S SUMMER INTENSIVE
June 16–27, 2014
Apply online through April 7
What: A two-week intensive in contemporary writing, art, digital media, and the practice of publishing.
Where: 155 Freeman Street, Triple Canopy’s Brooklyn offices and venue, and sites throughout New York City.
Cost: Tuition and materials are provided free of charge. A modest stipend will be offered to all accepted participants to support travel though accommodations are not provided.
Triple Canopy announces its first Summer Intensive, a two-week program in the history and contemporary practice of publication, for twelve higher-level college students, graduate students, and recent college graduates. We invite applications from prospective students with backgrounds in areas such as writing, art, literature, art history, new media, and design.
During the Summer Intensive, Triple Canopy editors and invited artists, writers, and technologists will lead discussions and workshops with participating students, who will research, analyze, and enact an approach to publication that hinges on today’s networked forms of production and circulation but also mines the history of print culture and artistic practice. The program will take place at Triple Canopy’s venue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and will include visits to studios, archives, and cultural institutions.
The Summer Intensive will address such questions as: How have artists, writers, and designers historically used the pages of magazines and books as sites of and material for experimentation? How have new-media publications challenged conventions of authorship and reception, only to have those very challenges soon become the foundation of the new economy? How have artists, writers, designers, and technologists responded to ensuing changes in the media landscape? And how have responses differed in areas with disparate resources and relationships to technology? What are the politics of access and identity associated with online public forums and media?
Purchase Eve Fowler’s series on Triple Canopy:
Eve Fowler, A Spectacle and Nothing Strange
These posters are from a set, entitled A Spectacle and Nothing Strange (2011-12), by the American artist Eve Fowler. The series consists of brightly-coloured posters printed with fragments of text taken from Gertrude Stein’s book Tender Buttons (1914). The phrases are printed over a range of colourful gradients, and draw attention to the flexibility and queerness of language. Produced in letterpress by the now defunct Colby Poster Printing Company in Los Angeles, the posters were distributed by Fowler throughout the city in a manner similar to concert promos and other advertisements.
Triple Canopy’s 2014 Call for Proposals: Deadline Monday, March 10
With the launch of Triple Canopy’s new publishing platform, the magazine invites proposals for new work to be developed by artists and writers in collaboration with Triple Canopy’s editors in the coming year. The editors look forward to working with contributors on research, writing, performance, and visual material related to new projects—as well as on the eventual digital and/or print design of contributors’ work.
Commission recipients receive:
- Eight to twelve months of artistic, editorial, and technical support
- $500 honorarium
- Opportunity for inclusion in our annual print publication, Invalid Format: An Anthology of Triple Canopy
- Opportunity to use Triple Canopy’s space at 155 Freeman for a performance or other public event
- Coordination and production of any print publication or live event
- Archiving of materials and long-term maintenance of any online version of the project by technical staff
Submissions to Triple Canopy’s 2014 call for proposals may be made via the online form. The deadline for submissions is March 10, 2014. Triple Canopy 2014 commission recipients will be announced April 22, 2014.
Triple Canopy’s contribution to the exhibition is an installation titled Pointing Machines, after the simple eighteenth-century measuring tool for reproducing sculpture in stone or wood with a system of adjustable rods and needles.
Triple Canopy asks how the meaning of artworks shifts as they are commissioned, made, collected, disowned, replicated, photographed, exhibited, and published, taking into account the role of circulation systems as varied as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and eBay. The magazine’s installation for the Biennial connects the history of reproduction by technical and artistic means to the recent, remarkable collapse of the difference between objects and information. Triple Canopy treats paintings and furniture as data to be manipulated, but also asserts that each instance of reproduction can be generative and enriching.
