With alarmed intelligence, Folding Ruler Star exposes the violence of an expectant look and synthesizes the organic and the robotic, then unzips them just as machines unzip/concrete dividers/on the highway. May Aaron Kunin make all the rules, and may our capacity for facial communication finally collapse within his tremendous Dionysian orderliness.
—Jacqueline Waters

If the measure is that which disfigures, then Aaron Kunin’s hinged ruler needs to be placed alongside Duchamp’s standard stoppage as an equally ingenious corrective. In Folding Ruler Star, the security zone of the book is breached without shame, so that to live becomes reason again
