Wake, to become awake, to arise, is a composite of old English, Wacu, related to watching, and Old Norse, Vaka, meaning vigil, relating to wakefulness; wake is a track left by a moving ship, wake is holding a vigil.
(States of Wake) was a live critical writing project that took the form of dedications as moments of critical attention, unfolding as part of WAKE Festival in Folkestone. This book, edited by Diana Damian Martin, is a document of that process and an exploration of the gesture of dedicating performance.
(States of) Wake features contributions from Bean and Benjamin Sebastian, Selina Bonelli, Richard Hancock and Traci Kelly (Hancock and Kelly), Madeleine Hodge, Jennie Klein, Esther Neff, Problemdog, and Sheaf + Barley.
