I really enjoyed your “remediate” slippage - like most search-art (is that a term in common circulation? I can think of many examples, maybe we should make that a series), the shape of the project is defined by the edge cases - where it breaks our expectations by text is more interesting for the books that it includes that you don’t expect, or books that it doesn’t include that you do expect. “Harry Potter” has some gardening books thrown in….
Of course, sometimes we as readers know there is not going to be a match, but we want the echo effect of the search results anyway - we want to see our name in lights. I resisted “Jeremy” - but I couldn’t resist writing “WRT”, “Writer Response Theory”, and finally (when those failed), each word separately:
Wonderful riff inspired by the “Recycle” art. Sorry I don’t know what “Barthesian” means but it sounds impressive.
Kudos to Mark.]]>
