.This is a poem I was asked to write or submit to you,
.and it's thereby topical, the USA is no longer relevant
.to this or any other discussion. Big sweeps of waves

,arrows are functors among old categories and their

,category where dynamic locations cut through the
,brittle dress age of individuation.

,I am manifold and a manifold, a category of manifold
,transformations, where we are always plural and

hom Given two modules M and N over a unit ring R, Hom_R(M,N)
denotes the set of all module homomorphisms from M to N.
mho Electricity. the standard unit of electrical conductance in
the International System of Units (SI), equal to the reciprocal
of the ohm and replacing the equivalent MKS unit (mho)
Mohs Soft - can be scratched by a fingernail, Mohs' 1-2;
Medium - can be scratched by a knife or nail, Mohs' 3-5;
Hard - cannot be scratched by a knife but can scratch glass,
Mohs' 6-9;
Diamond is the hardest known mineral, Mohs' 10.
ohm the SI unit of electrical resistance, expressing the
resistance in a circuit transmitting a current of one ampere
when subjected to a potential difference of one volt.

,*/I would have continued to discuss the isolation of an
extremely brutal regime in the U.S.A. as fallout continues
with an increasing isolation of a violent "president."
I would have been a contender. I would have killed myself.
I would have gone into hiding. I would have become a
refugee. I would have become a refusenik. I would have
killed others, many others. I would have been called
maverick. I would have been someone. I would have been
important. I would have been inconceivable. I would have
come out from hiding. I would have returned home. I would
have become a healer. I would have acquiesced. I would
have been inconsequential. I would have been no one. I
would have become a healer./*,

Short bio:

Alan Sondheim is a city-based new media artist, musician,
writer, and performer concerned with issues of virtuality, and
the stake that the real world has in the virtual. He has worked
with his partner, Azure Carter and the musician-composer-
programmer Luke Damrosch. Sondheim is interested in examining the
grounds of the virtual and how the body is inhabited. He
performs in virtual, real, and cross-over worlds; his virtual
work is known for its highly complex and mobile architectures.
He has used altered motion-capture technology extensively for
examining and creating new lexicons of behavior. His current
work is centered around notions of gamespace, 'edgespace' (the
border areas of gamespace) and 'blankness,' projections around
edgespace. His current music is based on the impossibility of
time reversal, on fast improvisation, and anti-gestural
approaches to playing. His most recent work is this short
biography.
