Joshua Chaplinsky is a pseudonym for the Webmaster of unravelingtheparadox.com. He is a college dropout who self-identifies as an artist-as opposed to an author-that paints with the words of others. His name appears at the bottom of every page of this website, each one representing a signature on a canvas. This is his first large scale work of collage. He currently rewrites history and pushes the boundaries of art from behind a computer screen on the American West Coast, hiding in plain sight of the corporate Hollywood elite.
"Chaplinsky takes a famous physics paradox and brings it back down to earth, using it to rethink the ways in which families relate and interrelate and disintegrate. A collage that assembles itself into a sneaky whole in which it's not always easy to tell what the truth is." -Brian Evenson, author of Song For the Unraveling of the World "As confirmed by The Paradox Twins, Joshua Chaplinsky is one of a handful of American novelists creating the literature of the future: dazzling, original and subversive." -Steve Erickson, author of Zeroville and Shadowbahn "Like a coy, uncanny hybrid of J.G. Ballard and John Carpenter, the Oulipo and the Bizarro, The Paradox Twins is an engrossing and digressive trip through birth and back, stuffed from end to end with mystic weirdness and meta-gags with style to spare." -Blake Butler, author of Alice Knott and 300,000,000
