In 2011, Masha Tupitsyn published LACONIA: 1,200 Tweets on Film, the first book of film criticism written entirely on Twitter. LACONIA experimented with new modes of writing and criticism, updating traditional literary forms and practices like the aphorism and the fragment. Re-imagining the wound-and-quest story, the love narrative, and the female subject in love in the digital age, Love Dog is the second installment in Masha Tupitsyn's series of immaterial writing. Written as a multi-media blog and inspired by Roland Barthes' A Lover's Discourse and Mourning Diary-a couple in Tupitsyn's mind-Love Dog is an art book that is part love manifesto, part philosophical notebook, part digital liturgy.
