Heraclitus vs. Google: William E. Jones’ Automatic Illustrations

Here is a shameless plug for the upcoming William E. Jones exhibition, for which I contributed an essay for the catalogue. Also, William and I will be having a conversation before the opening – this Saturday January 11th – on the topic of ‘Heraclitus in Limbo’. If there are any L.A.-based Classicists out there, it would be wonderful if you come to join in the fun!
