It was, if I recall correctly, sometime back around March 2013 that I had a late dinner with Zoe Scofield in the East Village where she proposed I do a project with her. We had no money and no practical way to do it at the time, but Scofield liked whatever it was I meant when I was talking about “embedded criticism,” and she was intent on shaking up how she made her work, so this thing called “No Ideas But In Things” happened. Sort of. It was tricky. I wrote a lot online but embedded criticism proved tricky. That said, this past winter I finished a 12,000-word essay which got whittled down to a mere 7,000 that will…well, more on that shortly! In any event, I was super-stoked when Zoe texted me this afternoon with the news that this afternoon she was announced as one of 175 John Simon Guggenheim Foundation 2015 Fellows. That’s hell of company she’s in, and I am absolutely honored to have been invited by her to spend a year and a half watched her create BeginAgain, and am excited to see what she does next. Congratulations!
