Christoph Girard

Christoph Girard is interested in how the evolution of language can transform public texts into poetic artifice. The transition from original source material to the realm of disembodiment presents how process can be subverted into literature as linguistically challenging as poetry while it undermines the original grammar and syntax that commodifies different environments and mood sets into the illusion of a uniform experience. A common thread in the process is to show how textual manipulation can transform semantics to occupy a space between the tangible and fantastic. His recent chapbook entitled TRY ME. explores virtual disembodiment. He graduated with an MFA in Writing from Otis College of Art & Design in 2008 and is currently pursuing his second MFA in Digital Arts and New Media at UC Santa Cruz. Recent projects of his can be found online at .
