Works about this Work

Axonalogue Caren Florance , 2018 single work criticism
— Appears in: Axon : Creative Explorations , May vol. 8 no. 1 2018;

'5 years of experiential materiality.

'For five years, colleagues from the University of Canberra’s Centre for Creative and Cultural Research have held an annual letterpress workshop, to which they bring their own writing to set and print. Initial expectations about ideal presentation shifted ground when faced with the intricacies and possibilities of the process. This is an account of their experiences that combines insights from participants with framing observations from my own experience with letterpress, typographic layout and its relationship with creative writing.'  (Publication abstract)

They Will Oxidise Before You Even Finish Reading Kent MacCarter , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Overland , Winter vol. 227 no. 2017; (p. 18-23)

'Einstein’s theory of general relativity states that matter can cataclysmically implode, creating a state where a given density and the space-time curvature split towards infinite values. This is referred to as a singularity, or – as it is known to ordinary folk – a black hole. Extending out from a black hole’s unfathomably dense centre and extraordinary gravitational pull is a finite volume of space that ends in an event horizon: a demarcation – a line in the cosmic sands – from which nothing inside can escape: not rock, metal, Judas Priest, photons, alliteration or anything else. The closer that matter gets to a singularity, the more the laws of physics fail, eventually collapsing entirely.'  (Introduction)
