THE RUMPUS MINI-INTERVIEW PROJECT #219: ZAK FERGUSON

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Zak Ferguson’s work is mental in the best possible sense of the word. His work is unsettling. He is a self-professed experimental writer (I am an experimentalist!) and you can see how he approaches each aleatory novel or book with its own rules, lucidity, and structures as with this new series of “interiors” that are underway. The logic of Ferguson’s work is one of expansion and collapse, putting forward a thread only to subtlety fold in or snap under, yet still felt in body and under skin.

I spoke with Zak about his new book, 'Interiors for ?', and the second installment 'Interiors for ? Mark ii', which was published only two weeks later. We also talked about wandering burnt-out buildings in the UK, the legacy of underground or zine culture, vaporwave, his autism, and his awakening as a writer.
