The Organism for Poetic Research (OPR) is a critical-poetic platform for making and studying. The OPR takes shape from its many members, often operating semi-autonomously and spontaneously, and its contributors. The OPR operates primarily out of Brooklyn, NY and Providence, RI.
The OPR works through writing, visual art, group discussion, and performative events to explore ideas—materially and generatively—across disciplines, e.g. “science,” “philosophy,” “history,” or “painting,” “poetry,” “music,” etc. OPR projects take a number of forms: readings, seminars, installations, books, digital residency projects on our website, and Pelt, a sporadically published (in print and online) magazine organized around an invented concept that is further articulated through the collective work of the issue.
