Poetry. Part theoretical treatise on the ethics of origination, part assemblage-art investigation of the dissemination of public knowledge, THE SOURCE is a book-length conceptual essay, a polemic in defense of constrained bibliomancy and ambient research as authentic means to illuminate truth in all its messy vectors.
"Gordon has convincingly shown us that writing still has the potential to be personal, meaningful and spiritual without our ever having written a word of it."—Kenny Goldsmith
"Stretches a permeable skin around ruptured repositories of human thought-structures while sustaining itself, and us, on a nutritive broth of glorious language plunder...Kabbalist numerology, and exquisitely attuned appropriations."—Kim Rosenfield
