Carlos Antonio Piñón

Carlos Antonio Piñón is a Chicago-born artist and writer seeking to destroy the sentence. His work has been featured in several recycle bins throughout the city, most often with a better draft already in progress.

Carlos's biggest secret is that he has no idea how to write. Like no idea. He just kind of smashes the keys on his laptop hoping they form complete sentences. He wrote his last essay by throwing darts at a dictionary.

Is This a Thing?: Hello Again. 2019. Performance.

Is This a Thing? is a storytelling show that was created after students taking a live lit class at StoryStudio Chicago. The show takes place at O'Shaughnessy's Public House, and the theme for this night was "Hello Again."

The reading took place on March 11, 2019. For this performance, I read an iteration of my "The Bike Courier" essay.
