> writing 写作

I am foremost a writer of poetry and essays; my textual sensibilities find root in the modes and sensitivities central to these forms. In practice, my writing includes short stories, reviews, features, exhibition essays, plays and other forms of performance texts.

I enjoy formal experimentation and delving into unfamiliar modes. I especially like opportunities to enact or work within unexpected parameters, where I can come to know the specific textual logic + system + spacetime at work and engage with their specific features to create meaning. 

I want to discover how words can take on new resonances, gestures and agencies. I want to write a world of unnameable forms into being.
