My name is Ruth Les, fka Jess Henderson from Outsider. I am an author, writer, theorist, and activist. This is the home of my thoughts.
I am working as an independent thinker and author. My book Offline Matters: A Less-Digital Guide to Creative Work (BIS Publishers, Amsterdam, 2020) comes out in September. It’s a counter-cultural trip through industry superstitions and worker activism. Written under my previous moniker Jess from Outsider.
Write to me. I love it.
A new generation writer with experimental approaches to research, Ruth Les is critical of our everyday experiences in trans-sensorial ways. From exploration of complex emotions to journeying the fault lines of liminal spaces, her work considers the affects of technology in our lives, creativity-as-work, and ‘offline’ as a possibility space.
'No Fun' is a nod to the Stooges' anthem for boredom, to Sara Ahmed, and fellow feminist killjoys around the world.
