About Mathew Timmons
Timmons works in a variety of media, focusing on creating works using language, sound, poetry, and printed matter. His work culls from external sources and repositions meaning in unfamiliar and disarming ways. For his exhibition at 323 Projects Timmons debuted The Archanoids, an album of solo and collaborative sound poetries from 2005-2010. In addition, he also invited visitors to participate in The Arc of Noise, a collective sound poem which utilized 323 Projects’ collaborative capabilities. Viewers participated by calling 323 Projects while watching a video score of Timmons' composition and recording their own voice following the score. Since the show Timmons has worked with programmers and sound engineers Dan Richert and Aaron Drake to layer all the visitor’s messages into one single choral performance of the piece, making the world's largest sound poetry choir.

About [name]

The Futility of Making Salad at MATERIAL




THE FUTILITY OF MAKING SALAD
Panel discussion Sunday, October 3 at 1pm
and Launch of The Futility of Making Salad publication
a collaboration between Insert Press and MATERIAL
at MATERIAL 970 N. Broadway, Suite 211 Los Angeles, CA 90012


THE FUTILITY OF MAKING SALAD

Please join us Sunday, October 3, at 1pm at MATERIAL 970 N. Broadway, Suite 211 Los Angeles, CA 90012 for a panel discussion around the topic of community and a launch of the publication - both entitled The Futility of Making Salad. 

Panel members include: 
Mathew Timmons, Marcus Civin, 
Elana Mann
, Adam Overton, 
Dorit Cypis, 
Julie Orser
, Melanie Nakaue, 
Ginny Cook & Kim Schoen. 


We will be making a gigantic salad for everyone to share. Please bring a vegetable. You can purchase a copy of the publication at the event or order a copy online for $8.

Joseph Kosuth, in “Art and Its Public” defined an artist community as “...a community of artists who collectively, through individual effort, define what is meaningful at a particular historical moment concretely within the practice of their activity.” And comedian Stephen Fry, while viciously ripping into a head of lettuce, asks why making a salad (with no other motive other than love!) (and a decent desire!) is so frustratingly futile. We have invited a number of artists to address the question: is there such a thing as an artist community? Do they feel a part of one? What constitutes it? What would it mean to be able to collectively define meaning today, in a diverse and ever-changing art world? 



Insert Press in collaboration with MATERIAL, an artist-run journal publishing and supporting the artist’s voice, has collected the responses to this question and created a publication of these texts that begin to describe our ‘particular moment.’ With cover design and screenprinting by Maggie White Lomeli and Insert Press, and interior layout design & typesetting by Daniel Lucas, The Futility of Making Salad features texts by the following artists: Harold Abramowitz
, Stan Apps, 
Marcus Civin, 
Ginny Cook, 
Dorit Cypis, 
Robin Dicker, 
Bradney Evans, 
Nicholas Grider, 
Dan Hockenson,

CREDIT: Installation at LACE

photos of the artist talk and performance by Harold Abramowitz

CREDIT: Installation at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions LACE, August 5-26, 2010.

Les Figues Press presents Mathew Timmons CREDIT: Installation as part of Not Content, a series of text projects that investigate the ways in which language functions within public and private spheres and within the tenuous and transitory space between these real and imagined realms. Not Content will take place as a series of writers-in-residence. Most residencies will last for three weeks, during which time the writer will engage in a project that considers the physical and temporal space of the gallery/residency. Presenting Writers: Vanessa Place, Divya Victor, Douglas Kearney, Maxi Kim, Gaby Torres and Jenny Donovan, Amina Cain and Jennifer Karmin, Mathew Timmons, Yedda Morrison, Johanna Drucker, Marco Huerta, Sawako Nakayasu, and Christine Wertheim.

In late spring 2007 as an irrational exuberance and promise of financial fortune hung in the air, mailboxes were filled with generous and gracefully worded offers of credit. Just over two years later, in midsummer 2009, the shape of the financial environment changed radically and mailboxes still filled up with statements of credit. Something had to change, offer turned to obligation.

Mathew Timmons installation at LACE, CREDIT, is based on his book of the same name. Published by Blanc Press in Los Angeles, CREDIT is an 800 page, large format, full color, hardbound book—the longest, most expensive book publishable through the online service lulu.com. Divided into two sections, Part A: Credit–26 parts (a-z) and Part 2: Debit–10 parts (1-10), CREDIT is a highly revealing and emotional work chronicling a personal tale of credit.

Mathew Timmons’ CREDIT has been roundly endorsed by a number of artists, writers, editors and critics. Holly Myers has said, "Rarely has the mind-numbing banality of consumer capitalism’s fine-print underbelly been employed to such elegant effect. Mathew Timmons’ CREDIT is a timely epic in this crumbling age of debt." Willam Moor has said, "This book is a must have, along the lines of the Arcades Project, the OED, any crossword puzzle in the U.S. between 1982 and 1995, finished or not, the Bible, and of course the definitive attempt at something without reason, Marienbad." Robert Summers has said, "Timmons enacts a redistribution of the sensible that disrupts the common of the community: he shows what has been present but in a way that highlights the twisted irony of it all." And Dan Richert has said, "CREDIT's operation is ravenously lossy, feeding on filtering byproducts and mistranslation; emphasis on information loss/breakage makes the text self-genotoxic and it sprouts mutant poetry from attractive shapes and corners. The text can be rotated. CREDIT is unreadable and CREDIT is a vibrant autobiography and CREDIT is a rainbow dream."

Timmons' CREDIT: Installation at LACE will engage with excess through the layering of elements from the book. Beginning with the recreation of a few iconic images from the book at the scale of 1 inch = 1 foot (achieved with the help of scenic designer Sarah Krainin), the installation will develop as Timmons attempts to read aloud the entirety of the book CREDIT and record an audio version of the complete text. A software program will be used to turn the sound recordings into a new text, which will be released at the end of the residency as the paperback edition of CREDIT.

From Penn Sound - LA-Lit Clouds! plus.



Re-posted from Penn Sound

The summer rolls on and we keep updating some of our most-beloved series. In the spotlight today is LA Lit, the Los Angeles-based program hosted by Mathew Timmons and Stephanie Rioux at Betalevel. Over the past two years, we've brought you thirty-three episodes, broadcast between 2005 and 2008, including wonderful, in-depth readings and conversations with poets including Eileen Myles, Maggie Nelson, Will Alexander and Lee Ann Brown.

This week, we've updated our LA Lit series page, adding a number of new materials. First, we've added a pair of "Poetic Service Announcements" from 2006, featuring Alexander, Diane Ward and Guy Bennett. We've also posted the show's last three episodes (for the time being) — featuring Vincent Dachy, Lisa Samuels, Harold Abromowitz — which were produced in the fall of 2008 and the spring 2009. While the series is on hiatus at present, it certainly went out in style, with the two-day Clouds Conference, celebrating LA Lit's third anniversary. Recorded on November 21-22, 2008 at Betalevel and the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock, the conference featured a number of readings as well as two wide-ranging panel discussions, and its roster — including Sawako Nakayasu, Teresa Carmody, Mark Wallace, K. Lorraine Graham, Demosthenes Agrafiotis, Stan Apps, Ary Shirinayan, Lisa Samuels, Amarnath Ravva and Christine Wertheim, along with Alexander, Bennett, Timmons and Rioux — is not only a who's who of contemporary poetics, but also a testament to the richness of LA Lit's editorial perspectives. PennSound's newest team member, Katie Siegel, has carefully segmented the conference recordings so that individual tracks are available for each reader and panelist, allowing listeners to browse at will.

Tragodía 1: Statement of Facts by Vanessa Place from Blanc Press



Los Angeles, 07.13.10—Blanc Press is pleased to announce the release of Vanessa Place’s Tragodía 1: Statement of Facts, the first of the three-volume series, Tragodía. Forthcoming from Blanc Press this fall are Tragodía 2: Statement of the Case, and Tragodía 3: Argument.

Purchase a copy now through lulu.com

A statement of facts is a legal document which sets forward factual information without argument. These documents are used in a variety of legal settings, ranging from appeals to filing vehicle registration paperwork. The goal of a statement of facts is not to put forward an argument, but rather to present factual information in a clear, easy to understand way. That said, many lawyers may make implicit arguments in a statement of facts, using a variety of tricks to sway the reader to one point of view or another. Typically these arguments are designed to paint someone in a favorable light, or to dismiss the reliability of someone else.

Tragodía is composed of the three parts of an appellate brief: Statement of Facts, which sets forth, in narrative form, the evidence of the crime as presented at trial; Statement of the Case, which sets forth the procedural history of the case; and Argument, which are the claims of error and (for the defense) the arguments for reversing the judgment. Place’s Statement of Facts project involves reproducing Statements of Facts from some of her appellate briefs and representing them as poetry.

“What is a fact? “On February 28, 2005, seventeen-year-old Amanda was living with her mother and her twelve-year-old sister in Lennox.” Yes, that seems like a perfectly neutral factual statement made by Amanda in her police testimony.

But next we read, “When Amanda came home about 8:00 p.m., the lights were off and the doors were unlocked.” Are these facts? Not necessarily: Amanda might be inventing the scenario, although these facts can be checked against the testimony of her mother Sandy, who was out at the laundromat when the incident occurred. But by the time we get to “Once inside, Amanda made something to eat, then went to the bedroom, and laid on her mother’s bed to watch a movie,” we’re in the realm of interpretation so that the surreal account of the sexual assault scene that follows is less than factual.

Vanessa Place, herself an appellate criminal defense attorney who specializes in sex offenders and sexually violent predators, has assembled a remarkable sequence of narratives, taken almost verbatim from court testimonies she herself reviewed: her cases are entirely “real.” But what is the “real” anyway? What is the difference between fact and the interpretation of fact? Between fact and truth? And what do these “true” stories tell us about the society we live in, and the way we apportion innocence and guilt? Telling it straight turns out to be the most mysterious—and poetic—way of telling it there is. No novelist could invent horror stories as compelling—and puzzling—as these actual case studies. Statement of Facts is a superb piece of conceptual writing.”
—Marjorie Perloff


You might have supposed that the hallowed technique of cultural appropriation had exhausted itself in the wake of the Duchampian ready-made, the spend-thrift citations of Pop, Burrough’s lapidary cut-ups, or the critical twist given to all this by New York postmodernism in the 80s. But by re-presenting appellate briefs of sexual offense cases, attorney-cum-wordsmith, Vanessa Place has come up with another take on taking. Here the uncanny juggernaut of the Law collides with the excruciating strengths and fragilities of victims, voice is overwritten by context, and morality by salient indignation. In other circumstances we would take our hats off, but given her profession, she deserves a citation.
—John Welchman


By repurposing legal prosecution and defense documents of violent sexual crimes verbatim, Statement of Facts takes on issues too messy to benefit from further elucidation which only grow more disturbing presented in their purest case material form. For some, what Statement of Facts brings into the public square is salacious, but Place is in effect saying: ‘I move the ball out of this arena and take it into this arena’ in order to pump up the socio political volume on this legal/moral battlefield. Her definition of injustice is sweeping. Statement of Facts does not care what the reader thinks about content and in essence, Place’s relationship to content is like Oprah Winfrey’s to money. It is straightforward, and you are free to project onto it whatever you need to. However you respond to this fierce book, it is indisputable that Statement of Facts has carved out a place for itself as a touchstone of poetic push back. As Pasadena Superior Court Judge Gilbert Alston famously quipped in his dismissal of a 1986 rape case because the victim was a prostitute: ‘A whore is a whore is a whore’—Statement of Facts counters by unflinchingly reminding us ‘a rape is a rape is a rape.’
—Kim Rosenfield



Of Vanessa Place and Robert Fitterman’s Notes on Conceptualisms, Mary Kelly said, “I learned more about the impact of conceptualism on artists and writers than I had from reading so-called canonical works on the subject.” Place is also author of Dies: A Sentence, La Medusa, and The Guilt Project: Rape, Morality and Law. Place is co-director of Les Figues Press, and a regular contributor to X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly. Her most recent work is available in French by éditions è®e, as Exposé des Faits, and by Blanc Press, as the forthcoming English trilogy, Tragodía 1: Statement of Facts, 2: Statement of the Case, and 3: Argument.

PARROT Press!



Two Grrreat! bits about the PARROT series recently came online.

First, Mark Wallace wrote a brief and very good review of PARROT 1 My Beautiful Beds by Stephanie Rioux claiming that "Rioux is one of the most interesting up-and-coming, too-little-known poets around." True, I've known how good she is for coming on 7 years and she gave me the title "My Beautiful Beds" nearly 5 years ago.

And a decidedly not brief interview I did with David Shook of Molossus! about PARROT in general, it's inspiration and the printing process as well as the aesthetic of the series. Also, it's true when I say that, "A list of these authors books, chapbooks, journal publications, essays, plays, exhibitions, and media projects would astound you in terms of how long the list is as well as in terms of the venues these writers are publishing and performing in."

types of day at work, one that under it takes a staples of kid birthday parties on my circuit. Tuna on crackers (we loved the moms who used Ritz crackers instead of saltines is probably properly called tuna salad, but we don't say that. Anyway, I put in Miracle Whip, but at my house, well, we didn't:-), sweet pickle relish, a little sugar, and chopped up bits of 1) a granny smith apple 2) red onion and 3) boiled eggs. My mom also uses Kraft Sandwich Spread, but my lazy ass figures with the pickle relish, a little somethin'-somethin' extra to?

AWP 2010: Flarf VS. Conceptual Writing panel presentation



Schizopolis: The New Argument for Argument's Sake?

I have said elsewhere and quite grammatically, "Rather than make it knew, I prefer to make it known."

I am pretty much the middle presenter smack dab-in-the-eye of this panel... for reasons that I hope will become apparent to both you and me.

I am going to begin with a brief quote, then present a short list of three Facts and three Opinions and then a few comments and arguments on or about The New Poetics which we all seem to be addressing here this morning and which I hope may help us see how this argument or, that is, the VS. in Flarf VS. Conceptual Writing might eventually clear itself up or simply go away.

a quote from "Jack"
"We stand on the edge of The New Frontier—The New Frontier of unfulfilled hopes and dreams, a frontier of unknown opportunities and beliefs in peril." —John Fitzgerald Kennedy from his acceptance speech in the 1960 United States presidential election to the Democratic National Convention at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

Notice that 1960 is very nearly exactly 50 years ago.

FACTS:
#1 and this is for you Mr. Harold Abramowitz. The New Frontier is an Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning, six-issue comic book, limited series, written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke and published by DC Comics. The New Frontier takes viewers on an action-packed adventure, exploring the origins of the Justice League. In the 1950s, The New Generation of superheroes must join forces with the community's active veterans and a hostile US government to fight a menace to the Earth. The New Frontier Lounge has a great selection of beer, wine, food, spirits and music.

#2 We have here assembled the basic elements of an activity session.

#3 The New Company in cooperation with The Present Company has developed The New Friction Surface Modifier, the friction re-vitalizer!

OPINIONS:
#1 Wall street folks knew the risks they took, but in my opinion, did not care who had to clean up, pay, or suffer from their greed. It's part of The New American Business Cycle.

#2 Our website is The New Website. Let us know what you think, it can also be used for screening and its dense, narrow growth requires less trimming.

#3 "Regurgitation is The New Uncreativity; instead of creation, we honor, cherish and embrace manipulation and repurposing."

Ok, so before I launch into my brief comments, I'd like to make one other statement.
I foresee a narrow win in this Conceptual Writing VS. Flarf thing after months of hard-nosed negotiations over various possibilities most likely culminating in an unprecedentedly dense militarism. Well aware of the suspicions that any kind of “coherence” or "re-conciliation" might inevitably narrow our opportunities, I argue that connections are being made among the unprecedentedly diverse experiences and expectations of our unprecedentedly broad audience—our audience which is so dense and so very able to contain tensions, incoherencies and inconsistencies.

Brief Arguments:
Flarf Sux because it inherently promotes capitalism. Let me be clear, when I say Flarf, I mean the Florida Ren Fest. Trust me, I can talk about how much Flarf Sux. And then Drew Gardner and Gary Sullivan can write nasty things about me. That's fine, I went to the Florida Renaissance Festival web site and read the FlaRF Rulez & Regulations. Please read The New FlaRF Rulez & Regulations carefully, there are changes from last year.

As far as how it's affected The New Writing, I'd like to say that I think this is a very nice talk expressing the importance of Writing. We may use different words to describe the same concept, but other than for “conceptual purity” or something, it doesn't really matter. Though, a reader can become confused when a concept and an instance of it are blurred, Conceptual writing or uncreative writing is a poetics of the moment.

Question: What is The best New Eco Book on the Market? Answer, How do you Make Compost?

The author of The New Departures, a poetic adventure of sensual ecstasy, and an explorer of a humanity beyond, writes in his first language. “When I was a child, 'Ecstasy,' a song by The New Order from their 1983 album Power, Corruption & Lies tripped me out and made we wonder, is plant food The New Ecstasy?" The eighth stanza of the first poem in his book states that The New State of Ecstasy "un-perplexes" or simplifies things, and once inter-animated The New Soul can repair the defects of each of the individual souls.
[pause - disgusted look]
Conceptual Writing Sux. It's just one dumb ass writing out his wet dreams because Conceptual Writing Sux. You see, the artists' statement is the work in a conceptual piece of art.

I don't accept the premise that there are certain means of expression which can't be profound—oooo, so profound. What is profundity, by the bye? Such statements indicate limitation and resistance. What inherent aspect of collage, or flarf, rulez out this profundity? Once again, the rulez committee skids off-track. Rather than accept the blockade, try scrutinizing the resistance. Check In: When you arrive, check in first at the site office trailer, you'll find us just out front of the convention center. And please adhere to the Florida Ren Fest's theme by maintaining period dialect, dress, and decorum. For assistance, please see the proper, authorized individual.

We all know these books fucking suck, and Kasey et al. is absolutely fucking right, this is not good writing, just entertainment for the young kiddies who marvel at the sexiness of the cursor as it sux up words from anonymous web pages. We're all too busy writing about our subject in a way that connects with diligently appropriate conceptual frameworks. Conceptual writing has been defined by Kenneth Goldsmith as Writing and any attempt to engage with writing that directly sux you into the abyss of textual excess.

The New Kitten - mmrrrau... The New Writing - pleh... Stasis is The New Movement.

In some affective language, mouthing fish through murk, like cursing angels combining one word immediately followed by another, read as though they were plucked from a poetry-combo kit, Flarf Rulez, mix and match, a bit of this and that, smooth, and nicely spoken, the sort of poetry which is terribly nice, written by poets who you would love to give a hug, like a puppy.

[brief paralanguage moment, serious look, as if one is reciting something]

Unmoved by my genteel and kindly poem about nuclear cooling towers? Only a kill-joy and scoundrel would desire to voice an opinion contrary to the thoroughly decent idea that this poem is more than the parts suggest—how behind the surface it's saying something deep about how we live in the nuclear age, written by an intelligent and eloquent prize winner whose worth is there, measured in the silverware on the sideboard for all to know, and any who disagree, like this nasty Johnny F, [point into the crowd] sitting there, unimpressed and wanting to inject an opinion founded not on the jolly Cromwell, commander of The New Model Army, or spiffy King Charles the 1st, might just as well tear this whole cozy cartel down and get Bob Cobbing back to managing the bar finances.

FAIL!

Flarf Sux! TheTextAreAnswered, SoManyPrettyPictures! Flarf Sux. Kill the Bee Gees. All the words I have spoken thus far are based on the work of dummy and the armpits. WhaddaYa Think? Is the Angle of my angel preety, or tart? God I love this stuff...it's so utterly ridiculous! it's hilarious!!!

Oh! and I have a Conceptual doodle thing like original print on sale for authentic "high end consumers," [hold up CREDIT] if there are actually any here among you, and if you're interested come see me after the panel.

Also, so, let me say, I agree with Stan Apps statement that my book, "CREDIT is an amazing lifeline for Conceptual Writing that expands and inflates it."

And in that spirit, I would like to announce Conceptual Writing's new sponsorship with Trojan Condoms and introduce you all to The New Trojan 2 Go Condom CREDIT Card as well as The New Trojan Magnum Ecstasy Condom for both the Ladiez and the Gentlemans.
