I prefer layers upon layers with lights and shadows passing through.

Whitman! Wow, yes, I remember being moved by him in school. Also ee cummings; his visual poetry fed perfectly into late 80s Kenneth’s new discovery of Online, monospaced font and an already existing fetish for typewriters and combining words and the visual appearance of them. In rows and columns though (hence my ease at mastering Excel from 0 15 years later (and making darn good money at the time))

Not much for spiral poetry. It’s cute though.

Might also explain my penchant for Michel Foucault’s overlapping grids/ truth filtering through and being obscured thing he did with his hands.

Poor Chomsky just didn’t ‘get’ him, although I think Foucault was also a bit cocky… but then again.. so is Chomsky (as much as I adore him)

Chomsky takes a single line and plays connect-the-dots. Pretty pictures… builds nice little machines out of them – but I prefer layers upon layers with lights and shadows passing through.
