Ariana Reines – Vulgaris Aerae

<p>This project consists of 6 gifs, each marked with a date referring to a poem that was composed directly into the Internet in a single draft. These poems are distinct from other forms of live engagement for their verticality: they are at once instances of radical artifice&mdash;absolute poeisis (verticality)&mdash;and total, live responsiveness&mdash;the horizontal, interpersonal engagement with current events and other people, the welp and woof of writing straight into the world. Instances of presence such as this have becoming increasingly rare in Ariana Reine's practice as her visibility has grown.</p>
