In a collaboration with the poet and cultural critic, Adeena Karasick, and the multi-media artist, Blaine Speigel, bissett will launch his new book, time with this audiovisual/word-based piece to confirm, once again, that he is “a one man civilization.” With paintings by Jordan Stone, music by Bowen McConnie, and soundpoetry by Honey Novick.
