Tim Youd at LACE

Tim Youd brings his 100 Novels Project to LACE with the retyping of two John Rechy novels.  These retyping performances will mark the 47th and 48th novels Youd has retyped in his ongoing multi-year performance series.


The 100 Novels Project is an extended and idiosyncratic literary pilgrimage. Youd journeys across the world retyping entire novels in locations germane to each story.  In these charged locations, he uses the original make and model of the typewriter employed by the book’s author.   During his multi-week performances, Youd retypes each novel onto a single sheet of paper backed by a second sheet.  He runs the doubled paper through the typewriter repeatedly, until every word of the novel has been retyped.  Upon completion the two pages – a positive and a negative image – are mounted as a diptych, representing two pages of a book.
