Kyra Simone, Palace of Rubble
A collection of stories composed primarily of single words culled each day from the New York Times, among other news sources. Written under constraint in the tradition of Oulipo, these hybrid works of prose are reconstructions that no longer resemble the original texts, yet draw from the same reservoir of vocabulary, conveying new images and ideas, while preserving some distant ember of the universe from which they were first generated.
Emmalea Russo, Confetti
By turns cinematic, cosmic, alchemical, and geometric, Confetti uses language to alter the boundaries between film and daily life. Against a backdrop of screens, personal relationships extend into a play of light to create a meditation on disposability and permanence. Confetti soaks up dirt, shimmers, and gets thrown up into the air, landing on the ground in strange piles.
Join Simone and Russo as they discuss their work with episode host Halley Perry.
Produced by Nat Freeman & Michael Kowaleski.
Theme: "I Love All My Friends," an unreleased demo by Fragile Gang.
