Lisa Torem, Back at RoscoeBooks

We have a follow-up announcement to our previous post about Lisa Torem’s publication in The Cost of Paper, IV.

Lisa Torem will be joining actor and writer Susie Griffith for a launch and reading at RoscoeBooks. The event is this Wednesday, May 24th at 6:30 pm. There will be snacks!

Having launched our own anthology at RoscoeBooks earlier this year, we are sure you’ll have a great time at this amazing independent bookshop! If you need an extra nudge, read Lisa’s LED contribution and you won’t want to miss Wednesday’s reading.

LED Hacktivism

Literature Emitting Diodes is about reclaiming a medium of communication. Our point of departure was advertising, but there is another prominent use of LED signage, one that aims to modify viewers’ behavior even more directly than advertising: road signage. This type of direct, imperative language is ripe for appropriation, as seen in this recent case of hacktivism in Chicago. The Chicago Sun Times article below also cites previous actions along the same lines.
