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.

Masha Tupitsyn writes:


Lecturing about God in a series of dialogues for children called, God, Justice, Love, Beauty, Jean-Luc Nancy states:

“God is perhaps a way of answering: there is no point, no rhyme or reason, and that’s why it is good. It is open, it is available. Available for any number of things, but at the same time for nothing.

This is a book about time and the concept of love (and how love can be radical).

Review by Hestia Peppe

Masha Tupitsyn’s Love Dog, written on Tumblr and commissioned as a book published by Penny-Ante is the second in a trilogy of ‘immaterial writing’, following 2011’s Laconia: 1,200 Tweets on Film published by Zero Books. Love Dog is movie criticism, autobiography and philosophy. It is not-fiction. It tells stories both about and through media. Tupitsyn calls it ‘Polyphonic’ and asks that we both watch and listen as well as read.
