release date: Jun 11, 2018

Writing Under

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Writing Under
Alan Sondheim's Writing Under explores and examines what happens to writing as it takes place on and through the networked computer. Sondheim began experimenting with artistic and philosophical writing using computers in the early 1970s. Since 1994, he has explored the possibilities of writing on the Internet, whether using blogs, web pages, e–mails, virtual worlds, or other tools. The sum total of Sondheim's writing online is entitled “The Internet Text.” Writing Under selects from this work to provide insight into how writing takes place today and into the unique practices of a writer. The selections range from philosophical musings, to technical explorations of writing practice, to poetic meditations on the writer online. This work expands our understanding of writing today and charts a path for writing's future.

The Case of the Real

release date: Jan 01, 1998
The Case of the Real
Poetry. It takes a machine to unscroll the infinite scroll, speak the infinite names of gods and goddesses, make the paper and papyrus and phonograph and calculating engine in the first place. It takes a machine to make the machine. The book is hardly the first machine. Alan Sondheim's THE CASE OF THE REAL discusses virtual subjectivity in relation to the physical real: who, or what, are the subject and object? Do these terms have relevance in universes of information and desire? THE CASE OF THE REAL is a case in point. Saddlestapled chapbook.

Disorders of the Real

release date: Jan 01, 1988
Disorders of the Real
This collection of writing represents, in Sondheim's words, "a basic text for postmodern poets." Sondheim states, "My approach would describe something like the impossible search for the grounds of the Self in sexuality and ideology; the hysteria of the loss of speech; a work situated between poetry and theory that extends the boundaries of theory itself; 'the poetry of deconstruction'; 'the narrative of loss' ..."

The Wayward

release date: Jan 01, 2004
The Wayward
The Wayward is an exploration into virtual life and theory. It uses tools from codework to traditional genre; much of its work is the result of programming intended to create systems of circulating texts. Think of The Wayward as a poetics of the imaginary, stumbling over the grounds of the real – constantly questioning linguistic referents and ‘meaning in general.’ The work is a ground-breaking exploration of the roots and structures of online and offline life, in which language simultaneously explodes and implodes. Conversations among ‘emanents’ dominate inconceivable landscapes; sexualities are constructed and deconstructed. There’s not another work like it.
