WHAT ARE THE UNITED STATES AND WHY ARE THERE SO MANY OF THEM

I read most of this piece during my participation in the “Untitled: Speculations on the Expanded Field of Writing” conference held in Los Angeles (organized by Cal Arts, Oct 24- 25, 2008).

I was part of the “The Concept of Conceptual Writing” panel.

In 2010 it was published in the first issue of S/N New World Poetics magazine.

It’s an speculative exploration on neomemory, pantopia, networking, semiotics-based aesthetics and conceptualism… It’s a piece of what I call poet’s theory.
