a flash-based collaboration by Jay Murphy and Isabelle Sigal, is spun
from a larger work; these fragments seek to accrete and produce a sort
of subliminal confrontation with their ever-shifting subject matter,
much as the body is reputed to create vortexes of healing and repose
in response to traumas. A phrase from the Gnostic Gospel of Philip --"I
have come to know myself and I have collected myself from everywhere..."
can serve as a starting point here, as well as Hamlet's "in that sleep
of death what dreams may come." Multiple, intersecting planes of experience,
often mired in a sordid backstory of the American dream/empire (featured
voices include Florida death row inmates, Palestinian poets, and novelist
Kathy Acker) seek to produce new areas of resolution.
