about this item

A shocking, unnerving narrative, at its heart a love story, Leap-seconds is built of recombinant fragments from a profusion of sources. But also at its core is the question "How does one represent violence in language?" If violence does not derive from a place of soundness, then its product should be utterly confusing, ultimately paralyzing. The collection chronicles a bewilderment with institutionalized violence and the anxiety felt by a systemic desensitizationtowards it. So the rhythms are aggressively arranged, excessive, the single-mindedness of its repetitions an assault. It's mannerist patterns seek to enliven our senses, bring us to our senses, render us sensitive. A varied and polytonic manuscript, approaching unsettling content with nerve and empathy, Leap-seconds is a compelling treatise on violence and a stark encounter with the apparatus by which it is so often normalized.
