Author:Josh Orter
Description: Repository "where practical facts get rendered into utterly useless ones." Posts, which date back to May, 2013, have included "Monophone," musing on the size of the screen made from ripping the displays out of every iPhone ever sold and combining them into a single colossus; "Drinking the Pool"; and "Onement VI," a valuation of Barnett Newman's abstract expressionist painting. Orter describes himself as a "formerly math-deficient writer with the habit of figuring out things with little applicable value in the real world."
