SPACECRAFT PRESS OO8: “EXCERPTS FROM CAPTURE” BY ROBERT SWEREDA

DSC_0001Spacecraft Press is proud to announce the publication of Excerpts from CAPTURE by Robert Swereda. A total of 50 copies were produced, 25 of which are for sale.

Robert Swereda’s CAPTURE project is derived, via erasure, from the installation manual for a vandal-resistant elevator security camera. The camera was installed in a Vancouver department store, as part of increased security precautions enacted prior to the 2010 Olympics, measures which lent the city an atmosphere of Orwellian paranoia. By vandalizing the camera manual, Swereda captures the fear of subversive acts that motivates the proliferation of surveillance equipment, contrasting the unblinking and confining gaze of the camera with his own poetic eye.

Robert Swereda is the author of re: verbs (Bareback editions), Signature Move (forthcoming), and a chapbook entitled ionlylikeitwhenitrhymes (100tetes Press). He has served as a member of the filling Station collective, and studied creative writing at Capilano University in Vancouver. His other work has been published by The Puritan, ditch, West Coast Line, The Incongruous Quarterly, steel bananas, The Capilano Review, Enpipe Line and Poetry Is Dead.

Excerpts from CAPTURE is available for $3.00 including domestic postage (+$1 non-Canadian postage). To order, please contact Ken Hunt at jkchunt@hotmail.com. Paypal is preferred. Money orders in Canadian dollars are also accepted.
