Caroline Bergvall is a poet based in England. She has had texts published in a range of magazines and anthologies in the UK and North America. Some of her writing commissions have developed into collaborative live performances and text-based installations, of which Eclat, a walkman tour of a domestic space, later reconstructed as a book (Sound & Language, 1996) and a magazine collaboration with a graphic designer (Performance Research 1996) and Ambient Fish, a sound-text installation, later turned into a net piece (1999). Goan Atom is an ongoing project of texts and text-related events of which Krupskaya's Doll concludes the first period of work. Her critical work is increasingly concerned with contextualised text practices and bilingual or plurilingual writing projects. She is Associate Fellow in Performance Writing, Dartington College of Arts, England.
