gaps are eaten up by the reader by Christian Vistan and Elisa Ferrari

gaps are eaten up by the reader was written following five walks taken and recorded in July 2020 in Christian Vistan and Elisa Ferrari’s respective neighbourhoods of Ladner and Mount Pleasant on the unceded territories of the Tsawwassen, Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. On these walks, they read texts by and to each other alongside writing by Etel Adnan, Dylan Robinson, Édouard Glissant, Amelia Rosselli, Rhoda Rosenfeld, Craig Dworkin, and Harryette Mullen. The sonic environment is interpreted, translated, and foregrounded into text in the writing from these walks.
