The Crutch Room is an installation/immersive environment created by poet G.C. Waldrep and multimedia artist Steven Sherrill.  The installation includes some 700 crutches scavenged from a shuttered Pennsylvania hospital, with accompany sound installation.  Our hope, as practitioners, is that the Crutch Room will constitute an immersive ancillary environment, in effect a pocket universe, to which conference participants may repair.  Hugo Ball wrote, "One must be astonished totally, yet more and more softly.  This is how eternity wonders at the times and changes them.  One must wonder at the wonders.  And also at the wounds, the deepest and last wounds, and elevate them to the wondrous.”  Medbh McGuckian defines "the really faithful / memory" as "the part of a wound / that goes quiet."
