These are collaborative works by Brion Gysin & William Burroughs that are currently being shown at the New Museum. Pieces such as these, and related 'cut up' methodologies used by Gysin and Burroughs, have been influential to me since at least my teen years. Another influence has been Tom Moody and with precision (as always) he takes issue here and here with some questionable critique aimed at Gysin's work and influence. I've heard nothing but incredible things about this show and am going to see it later this week.
