The Oakland Readings

My friends Moira, Richard and Seth decided to host an impromptu reading for Google Voice this past weekend in Oakland, California.  The results are excellent: nearly 3 weeks of new content at Poetry, by Google Voice.

Several of those readings are already posted, including work by Walt Whitman, William Shakespeare and Dr. Seuss.

Mark Allen interviews Kenneth Goldsmith, who recently became the Museum of Modern Art’s first poet laureate.  Goldsmith explains his work:

For the past twenty years, I’ve been fascinated with rendering the mundane in language. In hindsight, my archival impulse arose concurrent with the internet, which also seemed intent on creating a vast warehouse of our most commonplace experiences—at least in the early days—in words. It immediately became clear to me the digital condition was going to be one of abundance, storing more words than I’d ever be able to consume. As a response, I made big books which, even in paper, reflected this new relationship to language.

I took one of Kenny’s classes in college.  Unsurprisingly, it was called Uncreative Writing, and it was certainly the most unique course I ever took — and probably the best, too.
