I’m Google,” by Dina Kelberman. I’m calling it a poem.

      Adam? It burns.

  2. mimi

      I’m calling it awesome.

  3. Homeless

      he draws on with such aplomb is, if he only knew it, tired, friable, eaten from the inside as if by termites. Only the monosyllables
      can still be relied on, and not even all of them. What is to be done? JM Coetzee, Disgrace,
      2000, p129


      is a hybrid art project that digitally
      South African author JM Coetzee’s controversial
      Booker Prize-winning
      1999 novel, Disgrace in order to explore the failure of language to maintain its authority
      in a complex global, postcolonial

      The work
      the full text of Coetzee’s novel into images using the Google Search Engine’s “Image Search” functionality.
      It matches each word in the book with its equivalent
      No.1 Google search image to create a new book, a visual text that is rewritten
      the eyes of a global, digital popular culture.

      Fire lives as the death of earth and air lives as the death of fire, water lives as the death of air, earth that of water.

      Dina Kelberman is genius.  Her comics (Important Comics) are essential.

      Important Comics genuinely changed my life and I sent Dina an e-mail telling her so, and she replied.

      One of the best BOOKS I’ve read in months, and I’ve been reading a lot. It affected me and I hadn’t been touched like that in a while. Maybe since The Importance of Being Iceland by Eileen Myles.

      Goddamn I am going to buy Important Comics for everyone who’s ever been nice to me.

      this is way cool, if you wait for all the images to download then scroll down at a medium fast speed, it’s quite cinematic and shows a cycle, I agree it’s a poem. it’s also fun to start a few of the vids all at once, a hugely amusing user participation piece, very thoughtful.
