 Benabou is the "Secrétaire définitivement provisoire depuis 1971" of OuLiPo (Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle), and active in the "OuLiPian Fridays" weekly gatherings organised in the Paris National Library since 30 years ago. We invited him to participate Convocation with us, but unfortunately he had to cancel, but participated remotely in a form of sending his text as material to our WRITING SCENE presentation in the Convocation Event.

 With “Kuleshov’s effect” we refer to the manipulation of space and time via juxtaposing two or more images, or – in a similar way –lines, words or concepts, in order to create assemblages of word-like components. Other reference points are creative geography + artificial landscape.
 For example experiments via rhythmic improvisation according to strict (or less strict) rules. OuLiPo is a 1960-founded gathering of writers and mathematicians who seek to create works using constrained experimental writing techniques. OuLiPians define ittérature potentielle as "the seeking of new structures and patterns which may be used by writers in any way they enjoy".
