When I was working on KEROTAKIS, I was very much influenced by the ideas of Julian Jaynes, especially his book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. I was also reading a lot in the realms of neuroscience, consciousness studies, and alchemy. Michael Persinger was another one. My canon at the time consisted of writers like Kathy Acker, Bhanu Kapil, Camus, & Nietzsche. Today, I’m being affected by writers like Kenneth Patchen, Laszló Krasznahorkai, Cormac McCarthy, & Kim Hyesoon.
