screen-shot-2016-12-30-at-8-40-37-amSt.Catharine’s Arn McBay has created a new translation of my Prose of the Trans-Canada … as McBay explains:

In my conversion/translation of Derek Beaulieu’s Prose of the Trans-Canada the neutral space of the original text is formed by random binary code, while the original letter forms are now formed by/as space. What was previously neutral space is amplified and foregrounded through the use of an on-line text/image converter application. I’m interested in re-reading and re-framing this work in order to demonstrate its generative potential as well as create a new work.
