Motion Studies

Jena Osman (Author)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. MOTION STUDIES consists of three essay-poems that begin as meditations on 19th century science and end firmly as research into the present. From chronophotography to algorithmic surveillance, from phrenology to fMRI brain scans, from Victorian specimen collections to the bleached bones of the Great Barrier Reef, each poem in this collection explores technologies of knowing each other and the world we're in.
