Abstract (in English): 

A profile of the prolific e-lit author J. R. Carpenter focusing on the geosocial dimension of her works before introducing "Struts," a piece about her residency at an art gallery and media center.

Pull Quotes: 

Replete with drawngs, diagrams, videos, photographs, and text in the form of poems and superimpositions, “Entre Ville” resembles some of Jason Nelson’s mixed-media works, but whereas Nelson eschews any easy association with location and cultural specifities, Carpenter — whose videos always use natural sound, suggestive of quiet early mornings — creates a meditative atmosphere, inviting you to an engagement more with objects and animals than with the culture and the detritus of the information superhighway.
