One hundred apocalypses and other apocalypses by Lucy Corin( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucy Corin's dazzling new collection is powered by one hundred apocalypses: a series of short stories, many only a few lines, that illuminate moments of vexation and crisis, revelations and revolutions.

The Petroleum Manga: A Project by Marina Zurkow by Abigail Simon( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Petroleum Manga, first conceived of and rendered as 10-foot banners printed on Tyvek for gallery installation is now reproduced in book form.Originally, manga was used in Japanese to refer to whimsical drawings or picture books. Long before manga was a multi-billion-dollar-a-year comic book industry, there was Hokusais thirteen-volume manga, depicting everything from trees to demons, from squirrels to shingles. This was the work that inspired the form for Marina Zurkows own crazy amalgam depicting a taxonomy of products derived from petroleum.Remaining true to this inspiration, this book compiles a curious array of imaginative-philosophical texts by a variety of poets, fiction writers, theorists illuminating, illustrating, fabulating, and riffing upon a wide range of petrochemical-based objects and ideas. This "collection" maps new webs of relations between us and these seemingly ubiquitous yet often unremarked objects, along the lines of a fanciful petro-poetics.Fanciful, yet dead serious. As Duncan Murrell writes, " . . . our plastics will live forever, no longer able to decompose, while we become molecules again. When we are long gone, there will still be plastic clown masks circling in the Pacific Ocean. This, and not our great works of art and literature, will be the persistent legacy of life on earth, these objects crafted out of lifes own ancient flesh."
