Alan Sondheim was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania; he lives with his partner, Azure Carter in Brooklyn NY. A cross-disciplinary artist, writer, and theorist, he
has exhibited, performed and lectured widely. Recently, Sondheim had a successful residency at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center in New York; while there he worked
with a number of collaborators on performances and sound pieces dealing with pain and annihilation. He also created a series of texts and 3D printing models of ?dead
or wounded avatars.? His ideas explore death, sex, space, time, terror and how these effect our psyche and the body.

Carla Gannis is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received a BFA in painting from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and an MFA
in painting from Boston University. In the late 1990s she began incorporating net and digital technologies into her work. Gannis is the recipient of
several awards, including a 2005 New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Grant in Computer Arts, an Emerge 7 Fellowship from the Aljira Art Center, and a Chashama
AREA Visual Arts Studio Award in New York, NY. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. She is currently Assistant Chair
of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

Technological eyepod of the big London wheel.
Followed by the secretive hidingplace in plain sight of
Doctor Who's Arch Enemies, the Trump-peters.
While elsewhere someone's looking at someone else
only god knows why.
Old master lighting obscures everything but Turner's
steam painting, described, if I remember correctly, by
Michele Serres.
A pigeon accidently assigned the number of John Donne's
full portrait, of which the following, surprisingly
enough, has the bracelet of air about the wrist, reminiscent
of his poem The Relic, one of my favorite in all literature.
How did the pigeon get in there?

  - Donne's The Relic -

"When my grave is broke up again
        Some second guest to entertain,
        (For graves have learn'd that woman head,
        To be to more than one a bed)
                 And he that digs it, spies
A bracelet of bright hair about the bone,
                 Will he not let'us alone, "
John Donne appears... and then:
Mysterious antennae with an antiquated looking, perhaps
connecting the foreign office to the nineteenth century.

We are in the British Library.
