Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “If you work on something a little bit every day, you end up with something that is massive.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “It’s not plagiarism in the digital age – it’s repurposing.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “You can’t show me a sentence, word, or phoneme that is meaningless; by its nature, language is packed with meaning and emotion.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Automation and technology don’t cure behavioral ruts: they just create new instances of them.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “An updated notion of genius would have to center around one’s mastery of information and its dissemination.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Conceptual writing is looking for that “Aha!” moment, when something so simple, right under our noses, is revealed as being awe- inspiring, profound, and transcendent.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “It’s hard to be understood when addressing many people at once. How can you ever know if you’re being understood? So, I’ve just started being intelligently provocative. And people take the bait.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Art used to make me see the world differently, think about things in a new way – it rarely does that for me anymore, but technology does that for me on a daily basis.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I think it’s time to admit that our writing is guided by the technology we use as much as it is by our own subjectivity.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “If you don’t want something to exist – and there are many reasons to want to keep things private – keep it off the web. But if you put it in digital form, expect it to be bootlegged, remixed, manipulated, and endlessly commented upon.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Language is material to shape and mold, not only a transparent or invisible medium for communication, business contracts, or telling stories.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I don’t have a readership, I have a thinkership. I guess this is why what I do is called “conceptual writing.” The idea is much more important than the product.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “The best thing about conceptual poetry is that it doesn’t need to be read. You don’t have to read it. As a matter of fact, you can write books, and you don’t even have to read them. My books, for example, are unreadable. All you need to know is the concept behind them. Here’s every word I spoke for a week. Here’s a year’s worth of weather reports... and without ever having to read these things, you understand them.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “All of our media is made of language: our films, our music, our images, and of course our words. How different this is from analog production, where, if you were somehow able to peel back the emulsion from, say, a photograph, you wouldn’t find a speck of language lurking below the surface.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “How fortunate we are to exist in the moneyless economy of poetry! When you take money out of the equation, anything goes and nobody cares. It’s truly free.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Poets think in short lines. Unless you’re Samuel Beckett, Twitter might be more difficult for novelists.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “New York City is just one node on the global cultural scene. Social media reflects the state of the world, so I’ve become more devoted to that. To be a NYC artist feels local and small. Social media feels now.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Twitter is not art. But it inspires me in the way that art used to inspire me.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “It’s Twitter’s combination of simplicity and complexity that is astonishing in the same way that minimalist sculpture was inspiring and enlightening.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I’ve been trolled lots. But I understand trolls for what they are and I don’t let them get to me. They take my bait, so I’m in charge of the discourse.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Most artists want first and foremost to be loved, secondly to make history, and money is a distant third or fourth.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “Favoriting tweets has become a form of acknowledging that you’ve read what someone else has written.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I think that the special thing about radio is the off switch. If something’s not pleasing you, turn it off.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I think that writers often try too hard in the name of expression, when often it’s just a matter of reframing what’s around you or republishing a preexisting text into a new environment that makes for a successful work.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I think that the richer and deeper documentation is on the web, the better off we all are.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I don’t think that the world will ever become an unpoliced place, sadly. But I do feel that there is relative freedom on the margins.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “We’re living in a time when the sheer amount of language has exponentially increased. As writers, if we wish to be contemporary, I think we need to acknowledge that the very nature of the materials that we’re working with – the landscape of language – is very different than it was a few decades ago.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I often don’t endorse what I tweet, rather I want to throw things about to spark conversation or controversy. What I think about something is not particularly important when talking to thousands of unknown strangers.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “You may not want to hear that or think of it as writing, but I’m telling you that the moving of information is a literary act in and of itself. Even when people aren’t reading it.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “I never wanted my books to be mistaken for poetry or fiction books; I wanted to write reference books. But instead of referring to something, they refer to nothing.”
Kenneth Goldsmith Quote: “What I’m doing in writing has been thoroughly and exhaustively explored in other fields like visual art, music, and cinema, yet somehow it’s never really been tested on the page.”
