Product Overview

A collaboration between poet Kenward Elmslie and Trevor Winkfield that responds to life in the post-millenial information age, Cyberspace resounds with wit, satirical energy, and imagination. Elmslie's radical restructuring of language and Winkfield's fantastical collages pull us headfirst into a dreamlike world outside of time where everything seems to happen at once, where the serious and the profound coexist with the absurd and cartoonish, and where distinctions between pattern and noise become blurred. As Elmslie's poetry moves through a maelstrom of buzzwords, jargon and outrageous juxtapositions, Winkfield's accompanying polychromatic images move from abstract forms to what can only be described as exquisite corpses. Drawing on abstract, surrealist and postmodernist traditions in poetry and visual art, but ultimately eclipsing anything that has come before, Cyberspace is a remarkable reading of a society living at the speed of light. It is an irreverent masterpiece.
