Tan Lin - Bib., Rev. Ed. Westphalie Verlag 8.5 x 11" 152 pages 2011 1st printing Edition of 150 "The work aims to record nearly everything I read in the period(s) in question, detailing the time I read it, the place, sometimes a "tag" on the nature of the content, and sometimes an excerpt of the content itself. The work is a document of reading - not only what was read but the manner in which and the location of things read, which is to say it is a loose and non-systematic procedure for tagging or cataloging and digesting the elements that taken together constitute a reading process or reading environment. This environment of reading does not make it clear what the document itself is, which remains as blurry as reading, regarded as a practice or a system or an emerging genre: is it a catalog, a diary, a work of creative writing, a digest, an autobiography, a bit of typing, a cut and paste job, an example of data mining, an analog version of geo tagging?"- from the author BIB., REV. ED. is the third version of this ongoing text. The first version appeared as a series of blog entries, and later as an online publication in the Ubu series. http://www.westphalie.com/
