Wirelesslessness
An annotated examination of the structural and functional constraints of direction and meaning. The seven

the temporary.

Englshpublshing: Writing and readings 1991–2002
This book came from the notion of remaking, in the same order, everything that I had written and published
during the 1990s, beginning from the model for a hypothetical journal. As this idea crystallised—of going back
a set distance and then proceeding towards the present—the retrospective view of the work seemed new, that
the familiar, the already done, had now become completely different. Along with unpublished work, much of the
material had been made available in a distinct variety of separate formats. The project of reformatting became
one of unifying and integrating inside a standardised layout. Within the sequence, the links and relationships
between one part and another became significant, a page-by-page process of both arrangement and manipulation;
and apart from the occasional minor revision little has been added by way of annotation or commentary beyond
what was already written at the time...

“The vignette, by its general appearance, presents itself both as a global metaphor for the world and as a
fragment. Dense at its center, tenuous on the periphery, it seems to disappear into the page: this makes it
a naïve but powerful metaphor of the infinite, a symbol of the universe; at the same time, the vignette is
fragmentary… incomplete, mostly dependent upon the text for its meaning…”

to the next other than the immediate stage of the river beyond and the particular landscape pictured.
