Description

The Obsolete Book in a Post-Obsolete World as Represented by a Post-Obsolete Book About Dance is a multimedia archival rhizome ecology in ten parts, and a reflection on the obsolescence of obsolescence, documented on the cloud, and open-sourced as a defense against post-post-obsolescence. It is a performable website, a pseudo-academic lecture, and a dance about architecture, in the spirit of Michelle Ellsworth. It exists as a website, and/or an installation, and/or a 10-minute performance. The book is dead. Long live the book.
