The Reality Institute

Complete All Problems. Please Show Your Work. by Michael Molitch-Hou

As a part of ENTER>text, an interactive, temporal-spatial-dependent reading, Mr. Bonney, Michael Molitch-Hou’s high school geometry teacher, presented an introductory math lesson covering the basics of math.

The lecture was a part of a book of poetry titled Complete All Problems. Please Show Your Work., which includes such poems as:

Real Numbers and Possible Reactions to the Introduction of Information

Loneliness

“69”


Boredom

1-800-DOM-INOS

The event was held at Concord, an art space in Highland Park, CA, which described the event thusly:

There is no stage, no podium. Guests will seek out their own unique encounters in text. Readers and their work will appear throughout the space, from the gallery and bedrooms to vehicles and secret corners, a living literary journal.

Which is a fancy way of saying, “It’s like a haunted house, but with people reading poems and stories instead of trying to scare you.”

It featured the works of other writers, including: Diana Arterian, Mark S Bernal, Saehee Cho, Sam Cohen, Kestrel Burley, Stacy Elaine Dacheux, Marco Franco DiDomenico, Kate Durbin, Lauren Eggert-Crowe, Emily Kiernan, Daniel Hockenson, Henry Hoke, Bryan Hurt, Amy Howden-Chapman, Lan Pham, Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal, Kirsty Singer, Stephen Van Dyck.  And it was a lot of fun!

Look forward to more ENTER>text in the future and submit to Concord’s Lost History of Concord publication.
