108 (Cutting Up the Past) is an epic poem written in the cut up style popularized by William Burroughs and Bryon Gysin. As Burroughs says, “When you cut into the present, the future leaks out”. In this case, win harms took 108 unnamed poems from her adolescence and early adulthood, and with ritual and unintended traces of numerology, cut up the past and rewrote her history. Originally done on a 22 vibration in a semi-trance state, the cut-ups were drawn from a box line by line and recorded as The Raw Channel. They are intended to turn the negative past into the positive present and revealed to the artist that time is nonlinear; our past does not define us.
