Wow, we had such an amazing time at Open Press in LA. We soft-released Levitations by JH Phrydas, which was read along with an epilepsy-inducing video of doubled, echoic architectures for queer resistance.
Emji Spero, Ivy Johnson, Emerson Whitney, and Joel Gregory did an simultaneous poetic installation with ambient tones created by Jennifer Williams.
Angel Dominguez read notes toward a more healing engagement for fractured poetic communities and some instructions for not over-committing oneself. We're gonna try to remember that next time! Oh well.
Thanks so much to Poetic Research Bureau for hosting us, and to all of the performers, panelists, and presses who participated!
