A piece of conceptual writing. An idea that is a concept that is a blog that is a book that is an object. The idea was that instead of doing what an author had her creative writing students do (bring in an original story in the styleof a famous author), why not do what the kids in the museums do and copy the author directly? Surely this faithful retracing would be more conducive to genuine study and attendant comprehension. Simon Morris stepped up and created his 2008-2009 blog, Getting Inside Jack Kerouac's Head, wherein he retyped On the Road, one page a day. This book replicates Morris's blog. This explains the why of the project, but not the wherefore of the book. It serves preliminarily to note that Information as Material is an art project and production machine in itself (run by Morris and Nick Thurston) which primarily publishes re-representations of extant text as books which are art objects.
