Activist Poetics
Liverpool University Press

This chapter explains Kinsella's objection to mobile phone base stations. More recently, this aversion has been extended to wireless Internet technology with its colonisation of public and private spaces, with so-called ‘hot spots’. He says that he is constantly confronted with the visual aspect of these telecommunications masts, and the knowledge that their language, their poison, is written all around him unseen.
