    “NO YESTERDAY, NO TOMORROW, NO TODAY” is a culmination of habitually texting myself everyday. It grew out of a necessity to create but not having the means to do so. The raw language is currently used as a studio tool and contains notes, reminders, poems, lists, prose, and observations. Using artificial intelligence, I parsed almost a year worth of writing to create something new that felt removed from myself. It compresses gaps of time together–one paragraph could contain four different points in the year. It begins with a poem, an example of the raw language that was fed into the software.

    Ena Kantardžić (b. 1994) is an American artist who speaks the tongue of a place they have never lived. Born a refugee in Germany, they equivocate notions of displacement with a lack of commitment to a medium. With a background in technical event production, they value spatial effects of gathering and belonging. Having spent years in Boston’s gay clubs, their works aim to function like the communication that occurs in nightlife, which must be reduced to the essential amidst so much noise.
