"‘I Look to Theory Only When I Realize That Somebody Has Dedicated Their Entire Life to a Question I Have Only Fleetingly Considered’

A keynote lecture by the poet Kenneth Goldsmith, whose writing has been described as ‘some of the most exhaustive and beautiful collage work yet produced in poetry’ (Publishers Weekly). Goldsmith is the author of eleven books of poetry and founding editor of the online archive UbuWeb. In 2013, he was named as the inaugural Poet Laureate of MoMA."

"Usu­ally, we expect quan­tity to com­pete with qual­ity. You know, like: YouTube’s all about vol­ume; Vimeo’s all about qual­ity. That’s the break­down that we expect. Cheap and mass-produced vs. high-end and artisanal. Except that YouTube is the qual­ity leader, too...just talk­ing about tech­ni­cal qual­ity, of course, and Vimeo has done a great job cul­ti­vat­ing qual­ity of a dif­fer­ent’s a tip for video uploads from the iPhone 3GS: Don’t send the video directly from the Cam­era app. It com­presses it severely, and there’s no way to tell it not to. Instead, copy the video from the Cam­era app, then open Mail, cre­ate a new mes­sage (to your YouTube upload-via-email address) and paste the video in. Voila. No com­pres­sion. Of course, the video takes com­men­su­rately longer to upload, but it’s well worth it. The same trick works for photos."
