DESCRIPTION
In 2011, Masha Tupitsyn published LACONIA: 1,200 Tweets on Film, the first book of film criticism written  
entirely on Twitter. LACONIA experimented with new modes of writing and criticism, updating traditional  
literary forms and practices like the aphorism and the fragment. Re-imagining the wound-and-quest story,  
the love narrative, and the female subject in love in the digital age, Love Dog is the second installment in  
Masha Tupitsyn's trilogy of immaterial writing. Written as a multi-media blog and inspired by Roland 
Barthes' A Lover's Discourse and Mourning Diary—a couple in Tupitsyn's mind—Love Dog is an art 
book that is part love manifesto, part philosophical notebook, part digital liturgy. The trilogy will culminate 
with the sound installation Love Sounds/Love Tests, an audio history of love in cinema.
