Slipperiness and Simultaneous Revolt: A Conversation with Ivy Johnson

"Slipperiness and Simultaneous Revolt: A Conversation with Ivy Johnson", author of Born Again, just released from The Operating System, is up now on Medium.

Here's an excerpt: 

To be born again is to be ecstatic, to stand beside oneself in fear, rage, or grief (Judith Butler, Precarious Lives). It is simultaneously in the body and out of body. It’s fucking God, then forming the words with the goo from that encounter. Born Again is my bildungsroman. All these themes, the etymological link of rape and rapture with the disembodying effect of consumerism, trauma, heteronormative white patriarchy, could not be separated. Once I got started, I didn’t want to stop. 

You can read the whole interview here.

Also, make sure to check out Ivy Johnson's artist book, As They Fall, which just happens to be the first book published by Timeless, the one that started it all.
