Redrover Redrover32 page photo zine designed for Jake Winans.
Nothing Really HappenedA game of visual telephone with Jack Nachmanovitch, Mike Finkelstein, and myself.
Mnemonic PlagueAn attempt to hollow-out and rebuild the structure of the Mnemonic device, a first-letter memorization structure, to create something more esoteric in its place. Each poem follows the structure M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C-P-L-A-G-U-E.
I Also Have A Magical KingdomA petulant non-rebuttal to Adventure Time and other animated shows with my own, arguably worse kingdom. Was featured on Printed Matter's Contemporary Illustration table.
Everything Keeps Going Horribly WrongDigital finger paintings recounting the tragic and repeated deflation of Florentijn Hofman's world famous "Rubber Duck" sculpture.
Foot TensionExploring the proximity and caged animal syndrome of New York's subway system through relationships between the feet of fellow riders and myself. Hostile feet in red, my feet in blue.
For SaleA zine exploring the visual language of garage sales and flea markets. It aims to apply the standard store-bought graphic systems in the manner of the chaos they attempt to cut-through.
Commute AlorsA collection of poetry written during my commute to-and-from my internship at NYC design studio Zut Alors! The series is an attempt to take note of my first true commuting experience and the harsh transition into the people-grinding subway system. Much of the collection follows a stream of consciousness picking up on observations of a yet-to-be-dulled commuter (myself at the time).
Face BookA fraction of the massive amount of metadata and user information created during my now 8 years membership of social media platform Facebook. This book holds IP addresses, Advertising Data, Access Logs, and more from the select period of March 2014. Each unit of data corresponds 1-to-1 with a singe sheet of printer paper in an attempt to draw notice to the often neglected volume of data we unknowingly produce and surrender to communications giants. Featured on Library of the Printed Web. 256 p.
