    Attention, Irritation, Texts

    As I write this I’m sitting on my bed, surrounded by seven books. I’ve dipped into each one of them – a little while ago I read through some of the aphorisms in Eugene Thacker’s Infinite Resignation before reading through some of my friend Matt’s introduction to Mark Fisher’s Post-Capitalist-Desire.

It was a great experience, and the first time I’ve attended or presented at a conference, so a […]
