Paper leaves and other constructions
a reading companion to Always Already
compiled and edited by Karen Christopher & Tara Fatehi Irani
Always Already is an 8-hour performance installation by Karen Christopher & Tara Fatehi Irani, which uses materials, text, sound and movement to explore the weaving together of plant, human and machine, including human/plant and human/machine hybrids.
Paper leaves and other constructions is a 32-page booklet, introducing the themes and content of the project, and responding to many of the questions that arose in the creative process. Drawing parallels between a path through life and one through the making of a particular work of performance, the booklet answers the question “how did you do that?”
The booklet includes contributions from Karen, Tara, Payman Kassaei (Professor of Mathematics, Kings College), Felipe Ribeiro (performance artist and researcher), Omikemi (poet), Eirini Kartsaki (performance writer and teacher), and an interview with Henry Dagg (sound sculptor and builder of experimental musical instruments).

A glossary of terms that come up during the desperate search for meaning that comes with an Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis. I went through it. I know other people go through it. There are plenty of books, either more clinical, or more autobiographical out there. This one cuts straight through shackles of narrative to provide discrete chunks of information in an easy to navigate, dictionary format.

A collection of texts and images on the bodies of artists and writers who battled with the frustration of their own physicality and whose work reckoned with these limitations and continued beyond them.
How do artists respond to the question of collective survival in the face of crisis? Can writing articulate, subvert and test the ever-present question of the future in modes that are nonlinear, affective and even choreographic? What are our hopes, fears and desires?
