+|‘me’S-pace, doc. 001.b is a poetic enquiry into the current state of the English tongue, and is book 1, volume 2 of a wider project known as “For Love Alone” Christina’S-tead.
In making its investigations, the project employs a method known as litteral poetics, in which words are not taken as arbitrary signs the writer may use as s/he sees fit, but as compounds with substance and structures and, literally, meanings‚ of their own. The method begins by isolating arrangements of the tongue that seem most categorical, proceeds to investigating the combinations and permutations within these strings, and finishes by presenting noteworthy arrangements to the reader’s e|e and ear
+|‘me’S-pace is published as part of the TrenchArt: Casements Series, with and Introduction by Dodie Bellamy and visual art by Lisa Darms.
