Ubiquitous Dividend: A Day-long celebration of Robert Kocik’s 'Supple Science'

Workshop: 2:00–5:00pm
Performance: 6:00–8:00pm

Poets House presents an afternoon workshop and concert celebrating the works of poet and prosodist Robert Kocik through a variety of disciplines—poetics, visual art, performance, architecture, disability studies, design, medicine, economics, and politics—to explore what Kocik calls the “sore, over-sensitive, insecure, and supple sciences.” This event is also the release of Supple Science: A Robert Kocik Primer, recently published by ON Contemporary Practice.

Crossing the Line with Priscilla Becker

Lineation is the main design, the central idiosyncratic feature of poetry. This class stems from connections to other precincts of lineation, primarily geology: the linear structural features within rocks, called intersection, crenulation, mineral, and stretching. The re-navigation of the poetic line into the metamorphic lineation of geology is a re- orientation. Our writing exercises will emanate from this interdisciplinary crossroad, employing such inventions as junction, stress, re-direction, and parallelism.
