Simon Morris on experimental bookworks
In a 45 minute presentation, entitled “Eating the book,” Dr. Simon Morris presented four of his experimental bookworks that challenge conventional methods of reading and writing. Morris has been called “philosophically irresponsible,” a “literary pervert” and an “inspired lunatic.” From 2011-12, he was writer-in-residence at the Whitechapel Gallery in London. Morris is one of the leading proponents of conceptual writing: a fusion of art and literature. In 2002 he founded the publishing imprint information as material. He lives in York, England and teaches at the University of Teesside where he is Programme Leader in Fine Art. For more about this event, including a link to a full audio recording, click here.
