CityFish is a work of fiction, I swear. Any resemblance to real-life mothers, uncles, aunts or cousins anywhere may be attributed to the common craziness of all families everywhere.
A beta version of CityFish was presented at "Archive & Innovate, The 4th International Conference & Festival of the Electronic Literature Organization," Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA, June 3-6, 2010.
A portion of CityFish was presented as a work-in-progress at "Interventions: Literary Practice at the Edge: A Gathering," at The Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada, February 18, 2010.
Some of the videos in CityFish were edited during the "Babel Babble Rabble: On Language and Art" thematic residency at The Banff Centre in 2006. Thanks to Pelletron, Notsosimpleton and all that crew.
The Coney Island videos were shot with the assistance of the exteremly patient Eric Fleischer, least crazy of cousins.
Additional Chinatown and Flushing photography was shot with the assistance of Jerome Fletcher and Aphra Kennedy-Fletcher.
My most humble respect to the authors of the texts I've reprinted without permission: Rob Allen, Djuna Barnes, Michel de Certeau, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, and Henry David Thoreau.
A very very very early web-based version of CityFish was presented in an exhibition called ISWAS, at the Bavarian American Hotel in Nuremberg, Germany, July 1998.
CityFish was created with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts
