Shanzhai Lyric

Shanzhai Lyric (Ming Lin and Alexandra Tatarsky) is a body of research focusing on radical logistics and linguistics through the prism of technological aberration and nonofficial cultures. Shanzhai Lyric is the name of both the project and the phenomenon we are trying to identify—an anonymously and collectively authored ongoing poem emerging out of the detritus of consumerism. The name Shanzhai Lyric itself can be read as a kind of bootleg, eliding distinction as an attempt at expressing solidarity with the aesthetic philosophy and politics of this hybrid English while not claiming ownership over the found phrases that we are gathering as our subject.
