Mixed Doubles: Collaboration and Textual Tension

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Collaboration can occur, as it did for William Burroughs and Brion Gysin, as the creation of a "third mind." It can also be full of productive tensions that spur us to create work that would otherwise have been beyond us: tensions around authorship, equality, friendship, and, in some cases, gender. This panel brings together five collaborators who have worked promiscuously, in different pairings, with one another. Their digitally-mediated work involves computationally-produced poems, touch-interactive texts, audio transcription and redaction, and a bookmarklet for creating erasures from web sites. Their presentations will address the tensions encoded in their works, the ways digitally-mediated work can both create and stabilize imbalances, the ways difference or otherness inflect the experience of collaboration, and the engagement whereby duels become duets, and vice-versa.
