Is it possible to archive the invisible symptoms of an illness? Is the archive emotional?

Emmalea Russo's Wave Archive moves between essay and poetry while also pondering the mind-body connection and the unreliability of thought patterns and histories. Here, Russo invokes her own experiences with seizures, photographs and art-making, archival and indexical processes, brain waves, and the very personal need to document and store while simultaneously questioning the reliability of memory and language. Drawing upon the history of epilepsy in both ancient and modern brain treatments, Wave Archive disrupts and restores the archive over and over again, exploring the very edges of consciousness.

Praise for Emmalea Russo:

"Russo's writing, a peculiar marriage of compression and splay, embeds a germinal weirdness in the fallow page, and waits." —Anna Moschovakis

"Emmalea Russo is imprinting a new archetype of mystical female poet into the collective, where we can grow of the edges and be made of the Glitches and celebrate the poetic as a means of creative prayer." —Guru Jagat

"Follow it wherever it leads and let go of expectation about what a poem is. It's a scary gift with a complex and intricate structure." —Jen Bervin
