David Colosi makes Three-Dimensional Literature. He has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, France, Japan, Germany and Switzerland and has participated in various national and international residency programs.
During his stay at Varda Artists Residency, David used his time to research a new project about immortality and unrequited love in a post-singularity cybernetic and transgenic future considering the self-embalming practices of the Sokushinbutsu and merging the narrative strategies of Chris Kraus’ I Love Dick and David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas. He used the boat as a vessel for time travel and played the saxophone in secret places.
He is also finalizing the design of a collection of short stories titled Strange Things That Boys Do and his second collection of poetry titled Some Whacko Throwing Darts At A Beehive. David's writing has appeared in Intercourse, Konch, The LA Times and From Totems To Hip-Hop: A Multi-Cultural Anthology of Poetry Across The Americas.
His first collection of poems, Laughing Blood, was published by Left Hand Books, and he is also the author of Miss Pumpernickel Bread, Towards A Three-Dimensional Literature Part 1, and Letters to Poly which has been exhibited at the FRAC in Bretagne and Musee des Morlaix in France. In 2009 David received a Louis Comfort Tiffany Art Award, and he hosts a radio show on Clocktower.org.
