Pataphysics is a fictional science: the science of imaginary solutions. Sharon Harris proposes a problem for poetry to solve: how to unfold a book if the book is a lotus; how to unfold a word at the centre of that book? AVATAR is a word that is commonly heard but rarely understood. AVATAR (in virtual reality) is an icon representing a person online. AVATAR is the bodily manifestation of a God in Hinduism. AVATAR is a little like dancing with a cartoon after it shimmies off screen.
AVATAR is an Abstract Visual Asymmetric Technology Apperception Resource. AVATAR is writer and photographer Sharon Harriss first collection of poetry.
