Abraham Avnisan is an experimental writer and new media artist whose work is situated at the intersection of image, text, and code. Each of his projects appropriates and transforms a key 20th century text that challenges us to reconsider the most fundamental ways in which we understand ourselves and the world around us, from Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams to Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr’s historic debates about quantum physics. He has presented his work at the 2015 &NOW Conference of Innovative Writing, the 2015 International Symposium on Electronic Arts (ISEA), The 2014 Electronic Literature Organization conference, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s Word Weekend event, and at Centotto Gallery in New York City. His work has been published in Stonecutter, Poetry Project Newsletter, Drunken Boat, and others. He hold an MFA in Poetry from Brooklyn College, and an MFA in Art and Technology Studies from SAIC.
