The text is my territory. Though not only words, letters, syllables written or spoken, but the text in a broad sense: the cultural text that constitutes us, and thus the myths we live; the text of our circular memory, the infinite intertext of our being in the world; the text of the universe, the always already, the text(ure) of being, the rhythm that is intrinsic to a text’s composition; and - we have heard it before, but it needs saying again - in a digital world everything from design to downloading is literally text. Consequently, the web comes natural as the medium for writing creating composing.
There is a logic here but a logic without logical connectives - the ones you need to write in a linear fashion but which you here have to unlearn - whose complexity goes beyond my control. Still, digital technology enables me to follow the creative process from its conception through every stage to the text’s final editing - which never seems to be final. And, in the process I have to unlearn to rely on the word. There is more. Image music text technology. The interface where I tip in to the Other. Which is why I write create compose for the web.
Recurrent themes in my work are language, desire and love by means of which we create our subjectivity. Themes that continue my scholarly work in reader-response theory. In producing for the web I combine my intellectual work with the visual, the imaginative and the performative - it’s all a kind of an essay.
