Telescopio (2011), Benjamin R. Moreno Ortiz

After a century of its publication, Mallarmé’s “Un coup de dés jamais n´abolira le hasard” (1897) is still an enigma. Telescopio is an attempt to explore the Mallarmean skies as the referential cartography of modern poetry’s journey towards its explosion on the electronic media. A constellar voyage through the tradition, where the possibilities of the screen as a space for reading are explored. Comissioned by the SFMOMA for the Third Hand Play’s Series, curated by Brian Kim Stefans.
