Infinite Recursor Or the Bride of DJ Spinoza
Poetry. Drama. A verse-drama, Eugene Ostashevsky's INFINITE RECURSOR OR THE BRIDE OF DJ SPINOZA is a polychromatic collaboration with the New York visual artist Eugene Timerman, and the duo's answer to artist-and-poet books of 1920s European avant-garde. With a cast of characters as various as Woodpecker; Infinite Recursor; MC Squared, E; Andrew Marvell; The Bride of DJ Spinoza; and DJ Spinoza himself, Ostashevsky's latest work is part absurdist theater, part verse experiment, where language and image collide in a raucous and unpredictable tessellation of puns on puns: "The bride of DJ Spinoza/ has an absolute cleavage/ like that between natural numbers and Aleph-null"--from INFINITE RECURSOR OR THE BRIDE OF DJ SPINOZA. Eugene Ostashevsky's describes the DJ Spinoza Cycle: "The project is essentially about the shortcomings of rationalism, and was inspired in equal measure by comic books, Spinoza and Goedel's incompleteness theorem. I started working on it after I read Spinoza's Ethics, whose project of constructing an axiomatic system that would be a theory of everything, and of doing so in natural language with all its inconsistencies and ambivalence, I found to be very funny."
