Ammiel Alcalay

Scrapmetal
(Factory School, 2007. Heretical Texts, Vol. 3:5.)

Between a Cadillac and a Valiant sitting idly in the snow, Scrapmetal takes a provisional journey through the experience of work and the untangling of vampiric forces that sever life from our record of it. Part primer and part example, Scrapmetal offers a method of attacking the "inflationary poetics" that deafen us in the "steady hum of overproduction." Ammiel Alcalay is a professor of English and comparative literature at Queens College and The Graduate Center.
