Rachel nagelberg is an american novelist, poet, and conceptual artist living in los angeles. the fifth wall is her debut novel.
My work investigates the gray areas between art, technology, terrorism, and the body. Constantly floundering between the spiritual and the nihilistic, I use language to navigate my struggle to unearth meaning within failed learned political systems and deeply coded genetic trauma. The results are often chaotic, insightful, and deeply disturbing linguistic gestures towards incalculable beauty, riddled with holes.
