        emerging sentience

      Charlottesville / Atlanta:: JAB Books,, 2001.. Edition of 50. 16.375" x 11"; 33 pages. Printed paper over boards with cloth spine. Printed on Mohawk Superfine and Monadnock Astrolite (both neutral pH) with Wikoff Sunfast Ink at Nexus Press in Atalanta. Photographs, digital prepress and printing by Brad Freeman. Text by Johanna Drucker. Signed and numbered by artists. Project Statement: "Emerging Sentience was produced for the Poetry Plastique exhibition organized by Charles Bernstein and Jay Sanders at the Marianne Boesky Gallery. The conceptual foundation of the project is expressed concisely in its title: to make a work about sentience as an emergent property of intelligent systems. The original text had been written some time before, as one of the pieces in Deterring Discourse." Brad Freeman: "It is based on the following question: Is conscious self awareness an emergent function of complex systems or is it the spark of life? In other words, is there such a thing as artificial intelligence in, say, computers?" Johanna Drucker interview with Tate Shaw for JAB: "The piece, "Emerging Sentience," was part of a set of short pieces that were published as Deterring Discourse in the early 1990s. They each had new technology themes and also were responses to the closing down of public information and debate in the news around the first Gulf War. We lifted it out and condensed it slightly for this book. ... " With 'Emerging Sentience' we took the distilled, edited text and I laid it out so it would read from a distance, on the wall, in a grid. The text is a double text, embedded—one text is visible and legible when it is on the wall but it is set into a smaller text where it reads as well. We taped up the black and white text print outs and kept reworking that design until we liked it independent of the images. Brad was shooting pictures, but he made them work within the design after the text had been structured. It was an interesting exercise for both of us to see the difference in these approaches. "As for the language—! My head just processes this way. I'm still trying to push this continual shift of register into a highly eclectic mode. The heterogeneity of contemporary language we encounter on a regular basis and the effects in terms of producing us as cultural/social/ historical subjects is something I am so aware of all the time. I always say my sensibility is created at the intersection of Mallarmé and the tabloid press. But of course, nothing is that simple. I don't use any mechanical devices—no word lists, no processing techniques or cut up—just the random access of memory and association as I write. Punning and double entendre paraphrase are like cross-links or hypertext phrases that let me step from one linguistic zone to another in a jump.

        On the Blue Shore of Silence Poems of the Sea

      Santa Barbara, California:: Simplemente Maria Press,, 2001.. Edition of 50. Twelve poems in Spanish with English translations by Alastair Reid. Twelve giclée prints from original watercolors by Mary Heebner. Twelve hand folded folios of Fabriano Tiepolo each contain a different image from the series. Poems are letterpress printed in Adobe Jenson and Trajan from photopolymer plates on handmade linen paper and tipped-on alongside the images. Folios presented in a linen wrapper painted by the artist with indigo pulp at Dieu Donné Papermill and housed in a cloth-covered, clamshell box. Edition of 50. (11 x 14 x 2 inches.) Special Edition of 22 contains a signed, original watercolor from the Isla Negra series, mounted in a self-standing mat. The rugged Pacific coastline of Chile and the poet's verse inspired Heebner's Isla Negra series of collage paintings. "Neruda was a curator of memory," writes the artist. "He gathered up objects as if to store his thoughts among them." Thus are Heebner's paintings repositories of memory. Forms that she sketched in the poet's Isla Negra living room began to surface in her studio as she saturated thick, fibrous Japanese paper with bluish-grey pigment. She added earthy Sienna tones to draw figures forth from the depth. Oceanic colors and textures thus draw us into deep places, the places Neruda's language also leads. "Let us look for secret things / somewhere in the world . . ./ coins of time and water, / debris, celestial ash / and the irreplaceable rapture / of sharing in the labor / of solitude and sand."

        Horseshoe crabs mating

      Portland, Maine:: Rebecca Goodale,, 2014.. Edition of 3. 18.5 x 20.5"; 11 leaves. Drypoints on Japanese paper. Chine collé. Bound in cloth-covered boards. Signed and numbered by the artist. Rebecca Goodale: "Some prints cut out and attached on top of others to create illusion of wading at the edge of the sea and shore. There is also a two-page spread of chine collé larvae. This large clothbound book is read vertically, the pages moving up and down like the surf."&#11;Part of Goodale&#39;s extensive "Threatened and Endangered Species" series.&#11;Casco Bay Estuary: "Horseshoe crab spawning surveys were initiated in Maine in 2001 in response to anecdotal reports that populations were declining. This project involves collaboration among the Maine Department of Marine Resources, Bar Mills Ecological, Maine Coastal Program, and many other organizations to establish quantitative baseline population data to determine whether horseshoe crab populations are stable or declining. Approximately 50-70 volunteers collect data annually at sites ranging from Casco Bay to Frenchman&#39;s Bay. Volunteers measure water temperature and survey the number, clustering and location of horseshoe crabs along a transect during predicted dates of peak spawning activity typically associated with the new moon and full moon lunar phases of late May and June.

        Glimpse

      Portland [Oregon] / Berkeley [California]:: Flying Fish Press / Triangular Press,, 2011.. Edition of 100. 8.125 x 11.25 x 1.25"; 15 sleeves, 15 cards. Printed letterpress from handset type, wire, antique news cuts, dingbats, and photopolymer plates. Pages formed by envelope sleeves open ended on right. Each sleeve with miniature square window cutouts, and no sleeve with the same cutout pattern. In the form of a tablet with overlapping staggered 7.5 x 3.5" pages. Sleeve enclosure is attached to box of cloth-covered boards with title tipped on front. Signed by both artists.Triangular Press / Flying Fish Press: "Working together again after almost a decade (Ode to a Grand Staircase, 2001), Glimpse is a new collaboration between Barb Tetenbaum and Julie Chen inspired by a conversation about how a person translates their life experience into a narrative form: prominent events may stand out as the nameable moments, yet it is the space between these events that life, in fact, is lived.&#11;"The mid-century photo album structure contains text written by Chen, examining this question. Her text is printed on both surfaces of each of the 15 hinged sleeves. Windows in the sleeves reveal small glimpses of the pull-out cards, each written and printed by Tetenbaum and containing dates and events of the non-important moments of her life. These texts are supported by diagrams, grids, and mundane imagery."&#11;Working together again after almost a decade (Ode to a Grand Staircase, 2001), two divas of the book arts world present a life lesson elegantly &#150; as expected &#150; and precisely &#150; which is not quite a red herring, but at least pinkish. Glimpse contrasts the series of discrete events we use to define ourselves and the unexamined "spaces between events &#133; when much of life is actually lived." The suggestion is that we should pay more attention to those in between times ("waiting for something else" times, perhaps, in John Lennon&#39;s terms).&#11;If we want certainty, as the precision of the books surface design seems to suggest is possible, we&#39;ll be disappointed, as the subtext &#150; both in design and text &#150; suggests. The glimpses provided by the book &#150; through the windows in each sleeve &#150; don&#39;t offer much with which to construct a human being, or even suggest at the woman/women behind them. If you pull out the cards, note the precise date and time, take in the fragmentary description of an event, make yourself aware of the stylized antique news cuts laden with stereotypes and implied significance &#150; what do you have? What remains is the sense of something significant in the artifact and its implied significance. &#11;Perhaps the lesson is that we shouldn&#39;t be suborned by the obvious; it&#39;s always too scant, too easily misconstrued by our own desire for self-myth. It&#39;s part and parcel of Yeats&#39; observation: We still can&#39;t tell the dancer from the dance, the water from the wave. We are. And some can make art. It&#39;s a glimpse of what we should cherish.

        Edges Are Steps

      NY. 2001. One of 20 signed and numbered copies, all on Fabriano paper. Page size: 10-3/4 x 7-3/8". Bound: loose as issued in buff Fabriano paper wrappers printed with artist/author and title in black. Housed in black cloth clamshell box, fine. The poetry is set in Spectrum and printed letterpress by the author at and with the assistance of The Grenfell Press. The aquatints were printed by Peter Pettengill in Hinsdale, NH. Sarah Plimpton's book is a collection of six poems on three folio sheets, each with aquatints on both sides. The aquatints are in black and shades of gray going to white on the buff-colored Fabriano. In some cases they surround the word; in others the image occupies the complete folded sheet. The images are raw and jagged with a haunting quality, perfectly suiting the verse. "the curtain has its stars / you wouldn't hear / and the light I lit / has gone / the edges / are steps / with the night instead". Sarah Plimpton shows at the June Kelly Gallery in New York and has had her poems published in various literary magazines such as the Partisan Review and The Paris Review. Her artist books are in the collections of the New York Public Library; Columbia University Rare Book and Manuscript Library; The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library; and the Bibliotheque Jacques Doucet, Paris, among others. This is her twelfth limited edition artist's book. See an Image.

        Die Kunst der Zerstörung: Gewaltphantasien und Manifestationspraktiken europäischer Avantgarden [Gebundene Ausgabe] Hanno Ehrlicher (Autor)

      Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag, 2001. 2001. Hardcover. Good. 23,2 x 18 x 3,4 cm. Die inzwischen "klassischen" Avantgardebewegungen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts erregten die Aufmerksamkeit ihrer Zeitgenossen nicht zuletzt durch eine drastisch vorgetragene rhetorische Gewaltbereitschaft, die sich bis zum zynischen Gestus der Menschheitsvernichtung steigern konnte. Noch die moderne Avantgardeforschung reagierte auf diese Provokation vor allem moralisch, mit der Diskussion um Sinn und Legitimität einer derartigen Kunst der Zerstörung. Die Folge waren ideologiekritische Verurteilungen einerseits, andererseits Versuche, die symbolischen Aggressionen der selbsternannten Künstler-Herrscher als bloßen Ausdruck ästhetischer Subjektivität zu begreifen. Dagegen wurde das performative Potential einer gestisch in den symbolischen Formen der Kunst ausgelebten Gewalt weitgehend übersehen. Hanno Ehrlicher tritt diesem Defizit entgegen und nimmt die inszenatorisch-theatralische Dimension avantgardistischer Gewaltphantasien in den Blick. Dem Manifest kommt dabei eine besondere Bedeutung zu, fungierte es doch als das bevorzugte Medium für die Formulierung des phantasmatischen Anspruches, mit den Mitteln der Kunst eine neue Gesellschaftsordnung nach der Vernichtung der alten zu schaffen. Die ausführliche Analyse von fünf unterschiedlichen Kunstströmungen macht deutlich, daß jede "Bewegung" einen ihrer jeweiligen ort - und zeitspezifische Situation entsprechenden, von improvisatorischem Kalkül bestimmten Verlauf nahm, und sich das imaginäre kunstpolitische "Projekt" der Avantgarden deshalb nicht auf einen einfachen gemeinsamen Nenner bringen läßt. Außer den bekannten Avantgardebewegungen Futurismus, Dadaismus und Surrealismus werden in dieser Studie zum ersten Mal auch der spanische Ultraismus und der englische Vortizismus in einer breiten kulturvergleichenden Perspektive vorgestellt. Autor: Hanno Ehrlicher ist Wissenschaftlicher Assistent am Romanischen Seminar der Universität Heidelberg.

In dem als Lexikon konzipierten Buch wird das Sachgebiet "Nachwachsende Rohstoffe" umfassend behandelt. Gegenstand des Buches sind alle wichtigen pflanzlichen und tierischen Quellen und die daraus gewonnenen Substanzen, die zur Isolierung und Derivatisierung üblichen Technologien, die wichtigsten Anwendungsgebiete, die wirtschaftliche Bedeutung und die Ausssichten für die Zukunft. Es beschränkt sich nicht auf die Rohstoffe für die chemische Industrie, sondern deckt auch die Felder Energie/Treibstoffe, funktionelle Anwendungen, z. B. als Bau- und Dämmaterial, sowie die wichtigsten medizinischen Wirkstoffe, Rohstoffe für Kosmetika und für Riechstoffe ab.Es soll als eine fachliche und sprachliche Brücke dienen zwischen den verschiedenen Fach- und Berufsgruppen, die an diesem Thema interessiert sind, z. B. wirtschaftlich und landwirtschaftlich orientierte Behörden und Verbände, Landwirte, Pflanzenzüchter, Saatzuchtfirmen, Botaniker, ?-kologen, Chemiker in Forschung, Lehre und Industrie.Besonderer NutzenNachschlagewerk und Wörterbuch zugleich. Bei jedem Eintrag werden sowohl die Synonyme als auch die entsprechenden deutschen und französichen Begriffe angegeben."...especially useful to those readers working at the more basic chemical and biochemical levels of renewable resources." (American Reference Books Annual, Vol. 33) "...informative, easy-to-read, concise...recommended for academic libraries...company libraries...high schools..." (E-Streams, Vol. 5, No. 7).The second, revised and enlarged edition of this dictionary provides a wealth of profound information on renewable resources. Topics are all relevant plant and animal sources and the substances derived thereof, the standard technologies of isolation and derivatization, and the major fields of application - with regard to economic aspects and future developments. In addition to the "classical" use as raw materials of the chemical industry, the fields of energy/fuels, practical applications, e.g. as construction and insulation materials, the most important pharmaceutical agents, raw substances of cosmetics and aromas are treated. Not only modern methods are taken into account but also older, almost forgotten fields that stimulate new considerations. Well written and carefully structured, the dictionary is a very useful tool for a broad spectrum of users in different fields of profession, e.g. in public institutions, science and teaching or industry, in agriculture and ecology.
