This is a selection from an ongoing dossier of short fragments that I have begun this year. These fragments include fiction, real and invented interviews, speculative micro-essays, and found quotations. With them, I hope to suggest a kind of equivalence between all those forms, as if fiction can do the work of non-fiction, and non-fiction can take on the aesthetic remove of fiction (as if spoken by a character). In this work, I am aiming at an intermediate point between fiction and theory. I am allowing the themes of the project to emerge and develop organically, as far as possible, from the writing, reading and discussion that feeds into it. This selection is mostly fictional and circles around the felt encounter between the human and the machine.
