Abraham Avnisan is an experimental writer whose work is situated at the intersection of image, text, and code. Each of his projects seeks to appropriate and reinterpret a particular thinker, idea or theoretical field that challenges us to reconsider the most fundamental ways in which we understand ourselves and the world around us. He has presented his work at the Electronic Literature Organization’s 2014 Hold the Light conference, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s Word Weekend event, and at Columbia College Chicago’s Radical Publishing Symposium. His work has been published in Stonecutter, the Poetry Project Newsletter, Drunken Boat, New Delta Review, Rain Taxi, and others. He holds an M.F.A. in poetry from Brooklyn College and is currently pursuing an M.F.A. in Art and Technology Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
