& Drift is an ambient novel in multiple voices being written live on Twitter (@driftictation). It is intended to function both in the form of isolated fragments, seen randomly by ordinary followers, but also as an evolving narrative and finally as a finished “book” (in the most expanded of senses, including as written publication, installation, series of sculptural objects, performance, video, and on). & Drift follows an unnamed protagonist as she moves between locations (a [lashing series of cities, airports, trains, subways) and absorbs an intense flow of information from people, books, spaces and the internet. Different voices (each a separate Twitter account), express thoughts, observations, sound textures, images, quotations, letters, lists, and narrative turns. Still in process, elements of & Drift have been presented as sound performance and exhibited as an artist’s book.
