what is this?
This website is a testament to 'Lectric Collective
's nationwide journey,
which brought various literary projects to
artistically-driven communities across the U.S.
in July and August of 2011.
The collective encouraged folks to actively engage with the written word
existence of and grounds for the contemporary American literary landscape
, including readings
, and experiments
The content from the trip seemed to be fastened together
by a number of uncanny motifs and it became clear that a chronological documentary would not suffice.
Instead, this site is designed to not only broadcast materials from
the poets' pilgrimage, but to point to a preternatural
network by recontextualizing these motifs from various angles
. As the motifs transpire, the site evolves.
