The publication contains a number of entry-points into an expanded consideration of the Fitch/Trecartin cosmos. Ossian Ward interviews Lizzie Fitch to draw out the finer points of their collaborative process and discuss the crucial role of materials and objects in the creation of atmospheres and narratives. Bridget Crone considers the bodies that populate the movies, and how they might symbolise the desire to reach for an allusive freedom from ‘swampy’ structures of control. New York based poet and teacher Kenneth Goldsmith’s draws attention to the connections between Modernist language experiments and Ryan Trecartin as a writer for the digital age. Christopher Glazek’s close knowledge of the Fitch/Trecartin process allows a reflection on the complex way the contents of their art intersects with real world locations and histories, both personal and political.
