Erasure / Erosion: BARTLEBITS


Bartlebits is about erased sections in books. Most of these are not just corrections but actual deletions, wanted or unwanted. Throughout the various chapters, you will recognise some famous figures or familiar writings. These words, however, have been for some reason taken out and omitted from the original works.

At the end of Bartlebits, sources and links can be found.

Why call this Bartlebits? Maybe because we are dealing here with dead letters. Maybe…

Note that this is a work in progress, in other words a black hole in expansion. Bartlebits is part of our Crashtest series.

John Ashbery - The instruction manual



New Metal working for the dummies


As I sit looking out of a window of the building
I wish I did not have to write the instruction manual on the uses of a new metal.

Forming Cylinders with Rolls
1. By means of the screws on top of the forming machine, bring both ends of the front rolls
together until the metal sheet will just pass freely between them.
2. Experiment to find the proper height of the rear roll to make a cylinder of the desired diameter.
3. Hold the sheet in a horizontal position with the surface which is to form the outside of the cylinder, against the bottom roll.
4. When using a lock seam, make the cylinder larger than the final diameter and spring the seam together

Riveting sheet-metal joints
1. Holes for rivets having been previously punched by hand or machine, place a rivet thru matched holes in the joint by standing the rivet on its head on a stake and lowering the laps of joint over it
2. Draw the laps together by placing a rivet set over the stem of the rivet and striking the set with a hammer.
3. When a joint requires a number of rivets, place a rivet thru the metal, at both ends but do not clinch it tight, then begin riveting at the middle of the joint and work toward the ends.
4. When the holes for rivets do not exactly match each other in location, use a drift pin to make a hole just large enough for the rivet to pass thru.
5. After rivets have been headed, place the joint over a stake and strike the lapped edges to bring them as close together as possible.

Tinning a Soldering Iron
1. Heat the iron to a bright red.
2. Forge the iron to suit the job by striking with a hammer on an anvil or other heavy metal
block.
3. Heat the iron again to a dark red.
4. Clamp the iron in a vise or hold it against a metal edge and file the surfaces of the point bright and smooth.
5. Heat the iron again until it will melt solder freely.
6. Rub the point of the iron on a lump of sal-ammoniac to clean it, then melt a few drops of solder on the sal-ammoniac and rub the iron over it until it is tinned. Fig. 37.
7. Clean the soldering iron by dipping the point in a solution of sal-ammoniac and water. The solution should be made of one part of sal-ammoniac to forty parts of water. The solution should be kept in a glass or earthenware vessel.

Raising or Bumping Sheet-Metal Forms
1. Carve a shallow circular depression in a wooden or lead block.
2. Hold the sheet in your left hand, place the edge in the depression of the block and bump it with the small end of a raising hammer around the outline of the form to be raised.
3. Continue bumping the metal, gradually turn the sheet after each blow of the hammer and with each revolution work inward toward the center until the right shape is obtained.
4. Hold the raised form over a round-head stake and with a wooden mallet smooth out all dents that were made with the raising hammer.

Wiring Edges
1. Wired edges for cylindrical sliaped objects should be completed while the metal sheet is flat.
2. Insert the wire in the edge prepared by the turning machine or the bar folder and secure the wire at several points by bending the metal over it with a hammer.
3. Place over the lower roll of the wiring machine a section of the edge in which the metal has been bent around the wire and turn the crank screw on top of the machine to bring down the
upper roll.
4. Set the gage so that the wired edge fits snugly between the gage and the edge of the upper roll, then turn the crank screw back about two turns to slightly raise the upper rolL
5. Turn the handle of the machine to draw the entire edge between the rolls.

Flanging or Stretching Metal for Riveted Connections
1. Mark with a gage the width of the edge to be flanged and rest the edge on a flat stake.
2. With the cross peen of a riveting hammer strike the edge to be flanged.
3. Hold the flange flat on the surface of a stake and smooth it with tlie flat face of a hammer.
4. To stretch a right-angle flange for circular work, hold the flange to be formed to a circle
on the square head stake and strike the outer edge of the flange with the cross peen of a
riveting hammer.
5. When a joint of pipe is too small to slip over a connecting joint, slip it over a stake and strike the metal with the peen of a hammer.

Drilling Holes
1. Clamp the drill securely in a breast drill or a drilling machine.
2. With a center punch make a distinct mark to indicate the center of the hole.
3. Place the point of the drill in the center punch mark. When practicable have the metal resting on or against a wooden support.
4. Turn the drill to the right and at the same time force it against the metal. Eelieve the pressure on the drill as it breaks thru the metal.
5. When drilling steel apply oil to the point of the drill. Do not use oil when drilling cast iron.
6. To countersink holes after they are drilled use a drill slightly larger than the head of the screw or bolt to be used in the hole.
7. A star drill may be used to drill holes in brick, stone and concrete.

And as a last breeze freshens the top of the weathered old tower, I turn my gaze
Back to the instruction manual which has made me dream

Acrosticism - Samuel Beckett Vs James Joyce

And Jesus and Jesuits juggernauted in the haemorrhoidal isles
Modo and forma anal maiden, giggling to death in stomacho

Swoops and loops of love and silence in the eye of the sun and the view of the mew,

O for an opal of faith and cunning winking adieu, adieu, adieu ;

Katz as katz can, the book that never existed.

Katz! Katz! burning bright 
In the forests of the night, 
What immortal hand or eye 
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?



In February 2012, Flammarion found that cats looked like mice.  One fine morning Flammarion the famous publisher realised that Art Spiegelman's MAUS had been undeniably plagiarised.  Same events, same number of pages, same design, same characters except for one little / major detail: all characters in the original book had become cats.  The hand that framed this fearful and unbearable symmetry was soon to be discovered: Ilan Manouach comic book author.


Who would seize the fire should perish in fire. And so it was. All of the copies of Katz which had been secretely published by La 5eme couche, a small and independant Belgian press were declared illegal and were doomed to destruction. All copies (approximately 800) and the electronic files had to be suppressed which was diligently done by the Belgian publisher as part of an agreement with Flammarion which holds the rights to Spiegelman's book.

 So, it was with a deeply twisted heart that Ilan Manouach and his publisher, Xavier Löwenthal, saw the copies shredded and destroyed leaving just a heap of dead paper that they decided to even further destroy.  The furnace was in their brains but when they started to set fire to the paper, the police stopped them and declared it was illegal to burn a fire in an urban space.


So whenever, you take a copy of Maus again and thumb through these volumes, think of the Katz, all the Katz buring bright in the forests of these pages, hiding somewhere behind these gently anthropomorphic animals who are trying to tell one story. Behind Art Spiegelman's story, try and read the other story, the one with just one humanity, one single race in a world which is avoiding differentiation and singularity. No über-katz versus unter-maus. This other version exists somewhere with nobody to see this hidden work. Unless taking of course the original Maus itself and reading behind the lines, looking for the missing images in another dimension.


But still the stars threw some spears and, forgetting their tears, Ilan and Xavier decided to revive the lost book and document some of the memories around it. The Other book was named MetaKatz, a symetrical reference to Spiegelman's MetaMAUS.  Similarly, MetaKatz contains a series of articles and a DVD.  It is now available from La 5eme Couche.

Katz! Katz! burning bright 
In the forests of the night, 
What immortal hand or eye 
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion: Google Earth Movies



"Google Earth Movies project consists in a series of interactive adaptations of emblematic sequences extracted from famous movies, recreated and played in Google Earth.
In this visualization software, which allows exploring the 3D world from many satellite sources - topographical and weather satellites - the original video camera movements are precisely transcribed in the original filming location and with the original soundtrack synchronized. Moreover, the software being interactive, a joystick may be used to manipulate the camera during the reading to observe the whole screen out landscape.
Thus, it is a striking cinematographic experience that is given to us: the objectivation operated by Google Earth, presenting ghostly worlds emptied from any characters, allows to be focused on the framing and the editing of these well-known movies haunting our imagination. Putting these narrative sequences back in context establishes a true bridge between these cinematographic, physical and virtual spaces. The spectator is freed from the frame and from the territory; he is given a new space of time, a sort of intimate screen out, interrogating its link to the real and to fiction. "

Pope - Farewell to Rome

DEAR, damn’d, distracting town, farewell!
Thy fools no more I ’ll tease:
This year in peace, ye Critics, dwell,
Ye Harlots, sleep at ease!

Soft B*** and rough C***, adieu!
E** W***, make your moan;
The lively H*** and you
May knock up whores alone.

To drink and droll be R*** allow’d
Till the third watchman’s toll;
Let J*** gratis paint, and F***
Save threepence and his soul.

Farewell A***’s raillery
On every learned sot;
And G***, the best good Christian he,
Although he knows it not.

L***, farewell! thy bard must go;
Farewell, unhappy T***!
Heav’n gives thee for thy loss of R***,
Lean P***  and fat J***

Why should I stay? Both parties rage;
My vixen mistress squalls;
The Wits in envious feuds engage;
And H*** (damn him!) calls.

The love of arts lies cold and dead
In H***’s urn;
And not one Muse of all he fed
Has yet the grace to mourn.

My friends, by turns, my friends confound,
Betray, and are betray’d:
Poor Y***’s sold for fifty pounds,
And B*** is a jade.

Why make I friendships with the great,
When I no favour seek?
Or follow girls seven hours in eight?
I need but once a week.

Still idle, with a busy air,
Deep whimseys to contrive;
The gayest valetudinarie,
Most thinking rake alive.

Solicitous for others’ ends,
Tho’ fond of dear repose;
Careless or drowsy with my friends,
And frolic with my foes.              

Luxurious lobster-nights, farewell,
For sober, studious days!
And B***’s delicious meal,
For salads, tarts, and pease!

Adieu to all but G*** alone,
Whose soul sincere and free,
Loves all mankind but flatters none,
And so may starve with me.

Ballard was cited to court for Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Drugs/Alcohol 2nd Offense. Ballard has a prior conviction for DUI.

Witnesses to the wreck said the Honda sedan was traveling east on Ballard Road, had stopped at a stop sign, and then pulled out in front of the tanker, which was traveling north on U.S. 29. Witnesses said the car spun several times after being hit by the tanker and then went down an embankment.

The Highway Patrol is investigating, but no details were available Friday night. Lying upside down in the kudzu vines and with its passenger side driven in to a concave shape, the KIA was dwarfed by the Hummer that sat like a disabled tank nearby, its front end crushed, its dashboard displaced and its windshield shattered. Jackie and Tom Royal saw the helicopters hovering from their Ballard Road home and walked over to the crash site. They watched from a safe distance. Jackie Ballard shook her head. She’s seen too many serious accidents along U.S. 29, she said, in the 28 years she’s lived on Ballard Road with her husband. “This is a dangerous intersection,” she said. “There are too many cars, too much traffic and they drive too fast.”

He then rear-ended a vehicle that was stopped for pedestrians. The F-150 pushed the vehicle into another vehicle on the east side of Ballard and struck another parked car on the west side of the street. The parked car was pushed through the glass windows and brick storefront of Wylie Sports and Apparel.

Tristan Tzara: How to write a Dada article


Take a poem that resembles you.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that make up this poem and put them all in a bag.
Shake violently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
Take a newspaper.
Choose from this paper the place where you want to insert the article.
Paste the article inside the newspaper.
Then take some scissors.
Stab yourself to death.
And there you are –an infinitely unoriginal author of charming non-sensibility, and perfectly appreciated by the vulgar herd as you finally hit the headlines.

Isaac Asimov - I, Rowboat (recommended version)

1. A rowboat may not harm a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.



2. A rowboat must obey a human being, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.



3. A rowboat must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Allen Ginsberg - A Supermarket in California (recommended version)


   What thoughts I have of you tonight, Walt Disney, for I walked down the sidestreets of Disneyland under the trees with a headache self-conscious looking at the full moon.
   In my hungry fantasia, and shopping for images, I went into the neon DisneyStore, dreaming of your enumerations!
   What giant peaches and what penumbras! Whole Robinson families shopping at night! Aisles full of Beauties! Beasts in the avocados, Mary Poppins in the tomatoes!--and you, Cinderella, what were you doing down by the pumpkins?

    I saw you, Walt Disney, childless, lonely old grubber, poking among the meats in the cryogenic containers and eyeing the NeverLand boys.
   I heard you asking questions of each: Who killed the lions, the elephants and the deers? What price going bananas? Are you my Angel, Jiminy?
   I wandered in and out of the brilliant stacks of Nemo-cans following you, and followed in my imagination by Mister Incredible.
   We strode down the open corridors together in our solitary fancy tasting "Eat-me" cakes, possessing every poisoned apple, and never passing the cashier.

   Where are we going, Walt Disney? The doors at Monsters Inc. close in an hour. Which way does your hunchback point tonight?
   (I touch your Jungle Book and dream of our adventures in Wonderland and feel absurd.) Will we walk all night through a solitary Main Street? The trees add shade to shade, lights out in the dwarves' houses, we'll both be lonely.

   Will we stroll dreaming of the lost America of love past anthropomorphic beetles in driveways, home to our silent cottage? Ah, dear father, graybeard, lonely old puppet-master, what America did you have when Aladdin quit flying his carpet and you got out on a smoking bank and stood watching the 3D dream disappear on the black waters of Wall-E?

Marcel Munchamp - Ready Scream




[A Ready-Scream is an ordinary scene in which an anonymous subject, usually with an agonising expression, is desperately attempting to elevate himself to the dignity of an expresionist work of art.   Like most other Ready-Screams and their derivatives, these actions emerge from meaningless situations, they often remain undisguisised, unreaveled or unseen and often rely on the spectator's input to make sense. It will derive its identity and status from the designation placed on it by the observer who, in appreciation and recognition, will attribute a specific title to the emerging artwork.]

Comic art: Volcano Versicolore




New collaborative work between Sylvain Essayan Paris (aka Koloro Koro) and myself in which the traditional structures are broken: strips dissolve, colours melt, words fight to play their role within image.   Overall we are taking the art of comics through the limits.

" Volcano versicolore " est un livre de bande dessinée pictural où le personnage innuit siniswichi traverse les univers visuels de KOLORO KORO, graphiques en début d'ouvrage avec des phylactères respectivement en couleurs unies sans texte : gris, bleu, jaune, rose, vert, rouge ou à pois; le texte écrit avec Javier Kronauer d'essence poétique étant " hors bulles ". Il arrive que des phylactères blancs cachent en partie le texte peint sur fond noir, ailleurs, le texte devient la matière de l'image en surimpression d'une structure de cases et de bulles. Nous découvrons aussi l'éditeur Xavier Löwenthal peindre sur le corps de son auteur. Ce livre est une traversée graphique et picturale dans l'univers de la performance, du body-painting et de l'art contemporain. Pierre Sterckx écrit dans la postface : " la pulsion qui domine est franchement schizoïde, dans la mesure où l'entrelacs couvre la surface simultaneïsant toutes les figures et chaque intensité. Cela donne une espèce de réel plus dense que la réalité."



Book is available from La 5eme Couche

Chris Marker (1921 - 2012) - The Jetty / A Remix



“ I ” have a dream that one day [A FACE] will rise uuuuuup.
[A FACE] of ruins, though different. That [FACE] HE had seen from his
childhood, though different. A woman’s [FACE] ?
A [FACE] uninhabitable, riddled with birdsreal birds. With catsreal cats. With
gravesreal graves. Later, HE knew and some’time’ after, HE knew he was a man.
HE was the man over an empire of ratsreal rats.
“ I ” have a dream that one day, after painful tries, deep in this
limb’o, there it will be: the [FACE] <<<time of gardens, of flavors and benches} like landmarks in
museumsreal museums,,, though different.
Is it the same day? # HE doesn’t know# †he Fu†ure,,,,, better protected
than †he Pas†,,,,, <<<crumpling body, and the cries of the crowd}. The violent
scene upsets him and HE hears himself say : « This is where I come from ».
“ I ” have a dream today. Dreaming
<<<

>>>>years or hours later>>>>. HE never knows whose story we are telling
on the sixteenth day. >>>>Later>>>>, HE knows {he had seen a man
die}. A man they were able to conceive in peacetime bedroomsreal
bedrooms. While many died stripping out †he Presen† or seeking smilesreal
smiles.
“ I ” have a dream that one day the shock will be too great. The
man doesn’t want to die. HE suffers. HE remembers. HE is frightened. HE
speaks again. HE never knows. HE listens. HE exists. HE dreams. HE suffers,
exists, remembers and speaks again. And HE never knows. Like a sophism
merging |planes|||bodies|||and|||walls|. This world of childhood, of happiness,
though different.
This will be the day. A day, above the ground, a day subjected to
experiments without memories, without plans. As most of the world. Is it
the same day? Is it the f1rst, the tenth or the sixteenth day? >> †he
Momen† returns, empty and surprised to be born again. <<<
back>>> as a natural phenomenon, though different.
This must become true. As for him,,,, whether HE moves on the jetty
or whether HE walks on the balcony,,,, HE knows †he Mee†ing will take
place. HE feels the pacified dream of peacetime radioactivity. And the
criesreal cries of the crowd. And the cries of the [FACE]a real face
On this day, the countless walks behind the barriers of Fa†e will be driven
by strong mental images as †ime builds itself painlessly around (((him))),
‘f’r’a’g’m’e’n’t’ b’y f’r’a’g’m’e’n’t. Other images invent explanations but trust
remains unspoken. Images of tamed animals moving without effort
towards survival. « This is where I come from » but his dateless excitement
will be doomed.
Let freedom ring. Confessions settle in an underground network of
glass and plastic galleries. Beneath C***, beneath O***. The galleries
expanded,,,, off-limit,,,,, like a loophole in a trance. The human mind
recaptures an unreachable country,,,,, a long way to go.
When we let freedom ring, HE stands up. HE walks towards his
Mee†ing. A jetty? A balcony? HE recognises the man, the [FACE] who had
trailed him. HE hears. HE hears. HE hears again. The sudden roar, the
crumpling body and the cries of the crowd assembling around (((((him))))).
This Momen† is the Momen† of his own Dea†h.
Free. A brief encounter with a bullet and this is the end of the
experiment. HE is free at last. “ I ” am free at last ! ! !

Iggy Pope - Sweet Sixteen


Sweet Sixteen in leather boots
Body and soul I go crazy
Baby, baby I'm hungry
I am Sweet Sixteen

Funky church all full of faces
Pretty faces, beautiful faces
Body and soul, body and soul, I give to you
I am an easy mark
With my broken heart
I am Sweet Sixteen

Show you my explosion
I am Sweet Sixteen

Go out to the funky church
I get hurt- crying inside
'Cause everybody's so fine and
And they don't need me
Tell me, what can I do,
I am Sweet Sixteen

I give you my body and soul
I am Sweet Sixteen
I must be hungry
'Cause I go crazy
Over your bleeding feet

Now baby, I know
That's not normal
Well, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I am Sweet Sixteen

Everywhere I go, I'm lonely..
I'm lonely
I'm lonely
I'm lonely but so Sweet Sixteen
