This project, which he called a paragon of "uncreative writing," later became his book, DAY.Hailed as one of America's leading conceptual poets, vowing to someday drain himself of all creativity, Goldsmith has staged other such projects: For instance, he recorded everything he said for a week and transcribed weather reports for a solid year. In the Mills Hall Living Room at MillsCollege (5000 Macarthur Blvd., Oakland) on March 11, ask him how the heck he gets away with it. 5:30 p.m. Mills.edu
