Poem User Assembly by David Weinstein

“The photo shows an installation/performance of The Poem User Assembly that took place at Roulette probably mid-80s. That is me in the middle and David Linton off to the side. The machine was made of cannibalized tape recorders that played lines of a poem “Inside Juke” by Diane Ward. There were 64 lines recorded on magnetic tape and glued to the “pie” segments displayed on the racks. 8 playback heads enabled users to swap out any 8 lines of the poem in any order and listen to the voices read the segment.”
