ICYMI: download a PDF and link to all of the critical responses to my out-of-print 2007 book flatland: a romance of many dimensions (York, UK: information as material).

“As the Greenbergian modernists proclaimed the flatness of the canvas, so derek beaulieu reduces the page to a flat plane. The result is a new kind of flatness-call it non-illusionistic literature — a depthless fiction, one where image and narrative is reduced to line and shadow. In the great tradition of Picabia, beaulieu creates a perfect work of mechanical writing with one foot in the concrete poetic past and another in the flat screen future.”— Kenneth Goldsmith
