reading remixed

Scott Thurston (Openned Reading, London, The Foundery, July 17th 2008)

"take cover from my artificial intelligence"

"we cannot justify our deserts"

"shapeless static boundaries"

"our current past-life on a disused railway track"

"stalking instance"

"what have i given up"

"invisible worm"

"impersonal flowering"

"an answer to death spoken across"
