Knots is a collection of aphorisms, one line verses and fragments.
Written amid the active passage between movement and movement of thought, this mingled patchwork seeks to invent a topology rather than a geometry of knowledge. The book is assembled from combining relational improvisation through sound, movement, architecture and new media. The result is a series of events in the making, a nexus of tempos, capsules of intensity that foreground the process of perception taking form.
What people say about KNOTS
“A book of blank pages punctually marked by verses and broken verses. Terse remarks make the absurdity of the real tangible, as we witness the shaping and unshaping of forms in the exacting materiality of language.”
“Hypersensitive to the eye, responsive to the hand, Knots eschews the real for the might be.”
“Knots is life distilled to its very essences, bits and pieces of perception that hold the world together.”

I am delighted to say that I have edited the first of a new series of anthologies published by ZenoPress called Millets. This issue features works by artists and writers who have been invited to respond creatively to nine of the most known Zeno’s paradoxes.
The works presented here, propose themselves as thinking with Zeno, whom in turn accompanies each of the contributors to the emphasis on one’s own concerns and, if possible, in its crossing. It is not therefore a matter of retrospectively rebuilding the conceptual movements that preside over the work of the enigmatic philosopher. Instead more marked in this anthology, is the ambition to explore some unavoidable philosophical questions which happen with particular intensity in Zeno’s ideas.
