Karize Michella Uy writes, “These fragments were created through the assemblage process: I literally cut up words and phrases from two short stories I had written but have outgrown, and assembled them to form altogether different short pieces. I glued the word cut-outs on blank index cards, which I scanned. I have always thought fragments and moments operate on the same plane, that it is these ‘flashes’ we have come to anticipate, whether in reading and writing, or in life. In this light, I have also included a postscript, a fragment on fragments or on moments.” Three more of Uy’s assemblages have appeared online at The Cabinet.
