It’s the epic-ness that is Short Run! Find us in the small press literature row— somewhere with Wave Books, Gramma, Mount Analogue, Moss lit mag…we’ll be in that row!
We are an independent press in Seattle, Washington. We publish collaborations between poets and artists of all types. We also have an interest in publishing contemporary Argentinian poetry in translation and supporting writers with an interest in Argentinian culture and Jewish history in Latin America. Gay-owned and queerly run.
Which of course got me thinking about other texts you could manipulate based on prevalence and some other metric— though my husband is not a typesetter, so that conversation went to code more than look. So now I want to look at what other folks might be experimenting with.
And I ask because my husband is ultra science MIT nerd, and we were talking about taking headline mentions of a topic, normalizing based on mentions/time and then setting that text > my thinking is you might create an "erasure" or "redaction" but through overlay not subtraction.
Curious about poets doing data visualizations? Text manipulations based on data of some sort? Not "fake language" marking, but truly using data and perhaps code to manipulate the text. Who is doing this?
