Student Narrative

Great Lakes Aspen Excelsior is a collection of poems written from collaged text messages. The text of the book is printed within folded pages, which forces an intimacy between reader and book. Version i of this book is the more "readable" version, and version ii is the "granular" version -€”the words and letters are scattered and clumped like dirt, and the outside pages are flocked with dirt in vaguely letter-like arrangements.
