Berlin, performance artist/experimental comedian Andrew Jeffrey Wright, and comedy producer Aaron Nevins // Zine: Imagine Real Data // Essays: For Gossamer magazine, on killing houseflies; for Queen Mob's Teahouse, on pleasure and compliments // Poetry: For Prelude, Atrium and Acquaintance; for Incessant Pipe, Verb As // Email me: kikivolkert@gmail.com
