Astronaut Luggage By Adam Rothstein

Prints in 3-5 business days
Astronaut Luggage is a collection of short texts written along the last years and circulated online, rearranged around five main topics: the Apocalypse, commodities, drones, history and politics.... More > Adopting the forms of the essay and the short story, Rothstein sets himself in an “atemporality” that allows him to tell stories in which the distinction between reality and fiction is not important. As he writes in the introduction: “None of these stories are true, but none of them are false, either. These distinctions are not the point, at least not immediately. The difference between fact and fantasy are important, just not right here and now. In an atemporal dimension, all of these things happen simultaneously. Whether for good or ill, the speculation of these stories is speculation that occurs in the midst of this world, not outside of it.” Adam Rothstein is an insurgent archivist and artist. He writes about politics, media, art, and technology wherever he can get a signal.< Less
