Language is the hand of resistance or compromise. Memory is given shape and appropriated through the amplified narratives. Multiplicity and intersection of event reveals dominant form.
Language poet and political scientist Bruce Andrews described editing as the reading moment – editorial composition serving as method by which it is possible to reveal, according to Boston Review critic, Brian Kim Stefans, “the complex social vectors underlying even our most mundane activities and assumptions”. Sequence is recreated through antichronology: a fragmentation that isolates an immediate response to facts, that is unlike the interpretation of linear, chronological narrative. Assemblage involves this instant reading of the deep structures of events – the architectures of media representation, the absurd rhetoric of political process and interests.
