Tuesday November 18

AMARANTH BORSUK: THE HAND AND THE PAGE IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Amaranth Borsuk is a poet, scholar, and book artist interested in textual materiality across media–from digital interactive works to hand-made objects. Her books include As We Know (Subito, 2014), a book-length erasure collaboration with Andy-Fitch; Handiwork (Slope, 2012) and Between Page and Screen (Siglio, 2012), a collaboration with Brad Bouse. An artist’s book with Kate Durbin, Abra (1913 Editions, 2015) is forthcoming, with an iPad app by Ian Hatcher.  New media collaborations include a website bookmarklet that creates erasure poems and a gestural-interactive installation using historic diaries. Borsuk received her PhD in Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Southern California and served as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at MIT before joining the faculty of the University of Washington, Bothell in 2013.
