Working On My Novel

Cory Arcangel

What does it feel like to try and create something new? How is it possible to find a space for the demands of writing a novel in a world of instant communication? Working on My Novel is about the act of creation and the gap between the different ways we express ourselves today. Exploring the extremes of making art, from satisfaction and even euphoria to those days or nights when nothing will come, it's the story of what it means to be a creative person, and why we keep on trying.

Cory Arcangel (born 1978) is an American artist whose work explores the relationship between technology and culture. His work is in New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and the Tate. A classical guitar player and coder, he has a Web site that automatically updates every time someone tweets the phrase 'follow my other Twitter', and the blog, Sorry I Haven't Posted, that re-posts other people's apologies for not blogging.
