The New Alphabet/DNA #6: Carrier Bag Fiction
What if humanity’s primary inventions were not the Hero’s spear but rather a basket of wild oats, a medicine bundle, a story? Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1986 essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction presents a feminist story of technology that centres on the collective sustenance of life, and reimagines the carrier bag as a tool for telling strangely realistic fictions. New writings and images respond to Le Guin’s narrative practice of worldmaking through gathering and holding. [publisher's note]
