The future of poetry, philosophy, publishing, and collaboration come together in DIY para-academic groups such as the Organism for Poetic Research/Pelt. I have only found out about these dedicated word-scientists recently, and I’m proud to be hosting them at Observatory on Friday.
If you have any interest in the intersection of poetry, philosophy, and political life, come out at 8 PM at hear their latest lab and field reports (details >>).
Lab and Field Reports for the Organism for Poetic Research on the Skin of Space/Pelt No. 1 Release
Friday, May 25, 2012 • 8:00 PM • FREE
The Organism for Poetic Research consists of exactly what its name says it does. The publication PELT constitutes its epidermal organ, its interface with the world. Operating at the crux of empirical and humanist methodologies, fascinated with differentiation, the OPR has been studying the problem of the Skin of Space as an important political effort.
This event marks the release of the first volume of PELT, titled “The Skin of Space,” and heralds the occasion with the presentation of additional field and lab reports on the subject, in the form of poetry, lecture, and findings presented in printed graphic arts.
