Dealing with Family & Friends

A trip down memory lane recalls my first collaboration with German author / artist Dorothee Lang—a 2009 cross-disciplinary project that appears in the online journal qarrtsiluni. The quasi-mathematical formula is as follows:

audio + visual + fiction + theory + stamp
=
Dealing with Family and Friends

The project evolved over a game of email volleyball; a series of back-and-forth tosses that began with the lines that now appear on the photo. Image selection was next. Then came the postage stamp. The fictional theoretical story followed. Audio-recording of the words came last. Somehow, we pulled it together, without any conscious road map or plan.

In addition to the online publication, the project is included (without audio) in qarrtsiluni’s print anthology entitled:

(I’m) On a Narrow Windowsill

I’m thrilled to have a picofiction of mine featured in the new Folded Word anthology:

On a Narrow Windowsill: Fiction and Poetry Folded onto Twitter

The editors?

J.S. Graustein (California) and Rose Auslander (New York)
.
Here’s what they say about the collection:

Written on four continents and read on six, the works in this anthology celebrate the birth of a new literary form: the tweet. Ironically, the 140-character limit of the Twitter platform has inspired new and veteran writers alike to stretch traditional boundaries. Some experiment with abbreviated poetic forms. Others create back-story through innuendo. All make every word—every character—count. This collection introduces 43 of these pioneers who venture out each day onto text’s narrow windowsill.
