Ken: It would help if you could give us more detail. E.g. do the authors have to be living? (If not, PK Dick would seem essential.) If we knew who you'd already lined up it would help, as then we would have exemplars to suggest appropriate complements and/or contrasts.

For this project, I'm seeking a more poetically articulated > intelligence rather than an academically articulated one. That's not necessarily a bright dividing line. Some writers/thinkers who do heady/theoretical (especially on the page) also do poetic/creative (especially in person). Here I am particularly thinking of Allequere Roseanne "Sandy" Stone, whose writing can move from engaging conversational style to dense theory-speak in the course of an essay, but whose spoken presentations are more like Spaulding Gray monologues (if Spaulding Gray was as trans-gendered techno-hippie). You might also want to look at the work of Ellen Ullman, author of 'Close to the Machine'. The book is good, but I'm specifically thinking about the essay "Come in, CQ: the body on the wire" in _Wired Women_ (http://tinyurl.com/84nbvvx). I think she still lives in SF. Back to the SF takes on virtuality, William Gibson seems pretty accessible in terms of giving interviews, and he cooperated in making a doco about his ideas a number of years back. regards, djt _______________________________________________ FrameWorks mailing list FrameWorks@jonasmekasfilms.com https://mailman-mail5.webfaction.com/listinfo/frameworks
