About this product
- DescriptionWhen love, lust, and longing, have all but killed you, and Newtonian physics has become too painfully restrictive, is it possible to find freedom in ather dimension? Have you lost the will to live, or the will to live as human? Castaways in unmapped terrain, the characters in The Hope of Floating Has Carried Us This Far burrow underground in tunnels made by ancient nautiluses. They lay eggs by the seashore, and greet the sailors who come to carry those eggs away. And each by each, they choose to livebut to surrender their human forms. From within their peculiar neither-here-r-there-doms, they learn to live in unbounded states, with edges that can longer be marked, and meanings that can longer be defined. Quintan Ana Wikswo is a writer and visual artist recognized for adventurous works that integrate her fiction, poetry, memoir, and essay with her photographs, performances, and films. Her works are published, performed, and exhibited throughout the world, including anthologies, artist books, magazines such as Tin House, Guernica, Conjunctions, the Kenyon Review, and Gulf Coast, and in multiple solo museum exhibitions in New York City and Berlin. A human rights worker for two decades, she w uses salvaged government typewriters and cameras to navigate kwn, unkwn, and occluded worlds, especially obscured sites where crimes against humanity have taken place. She lives in Brooklyn.
