An archival rhizome ecology in ten parts, and a reflection on the obsolescence of obsolescence – documented on the cloud, and open-sourced as a defense against post-post-obsolescence.
The Post-Obsolete Book is a performable website in the spirit (and tutelage) of Michelle Ellsworth – with text-to-speech voice-over, transparencies, party hats, diagrams, whiskey, handouts, and music by The Widow’s Bane.
I was impressed by the purest form of outrageous creation.
—Judy Rose, Boulder Writer’s Workshop
Follow your bliss, Mia. Take no prisoners. We’re already dead. What the fuck do we want with money?
—Mortimer Leech, The Widow’s Bane
The piece requires a few props:
- overhead projector & transparencies
- digital audio/video
- party hats
- noise makers
- an old book (about dance)
- 10-page printed powerpoint handouts
