Simulacrum Press #22: ‘Mumbles in Hollywood, California’, by Ben Robinson

Ben Robinson’s Mumbles in Hollywood, California is an 18 page, 5.5″ x 4.25″ pocket size chapbook. Saddle stitched.

Only recently has Ben Robinson begun to experiment with language from the depths of the internet. Mumbles in Hollywood, California extracts language from closed captioned interpretations of mumbles and gibberish within vapid YouTube videos, then re-frames and re-configures that material. As Bern Porter, master of founds, once wrote, “When you are dealing with waste, how do you avoid using crude material? So, you have to find the artistic value in crude” (Found Poems, by Bern Porter).
