Abstract

Drawing inspiration from avant-garde writers such as Kenneth Goldsmith and Craig Dworkin, this piece was produced by the systematic principles of conceptual writing; its significance is in its process and formative idea rather than in the idea's resultant product. The piece, a transcribed conversation between the author and a few of her friends, doubles the notion of process as a final product in and of itself. The first emphasis is its simple existence and production as conceptual, which is inherently process-based. The second is that the conversation taking place in the piece is a constructive discussion regarding a project the author has in progress. It is musing, wandering, and filled with feedback and tangents. It is a process-based piece that showcases a small part of the creative process itself.
