About Me

Visual artist, poet, novelist, activist/Street Medic.

Why do you write?

I make art and literature from found things. I'm interested in the asthetics of process (how art & literary works come into being--writing as process), science, philosophy. I have a novel published by Deep Sett Press, Ari Figue's Cat, due for release May 25, 2015, and another, the Magic Slate, seeking a publisher. Both novels might best be classified as 'transfiction.'

After 7 years, I'm moving from my blog (Jacob Russell's Barking Dog), to Jacob Russell's Magic Names.com.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Alwasy shifting.. J.M. Coetzee, Don DeLillo, Richard Powers, Josopovici, Roberto Bolano, Witold Gombrowicz... the early 20th C. modernists: Musil, Joyce, Woolfe, Mann, Svevo...
