Dearest, correspondences

Dearest, transforms email scams about money into poetry about human desire by way of erasure. Both the original and the transformation are presented on facing pages. Do these promises of money ever hook anyone? Erasure brings out another layer, no less desperate.

In this book, both story and locations are disturbed - interfered with - disarranged. The result is a sequence of pages that are like rooms unhampered by customary furniture through which a non-verbal story is woven....
This is a colorized and edited hardcover version of my 2016 black and white book: Manual of Disturbances.

Branching / with luggage (2018)

Dustjacket softcover is at Printed Matter:


This is a visual book with words.

Branching is a connective process of linear expansion. 
Luggage is carried from place to place. Language, could be considered as a branch of luggage....

In this book photographs of branches have been complicated by language, which is baggage trying to pass as luggage.  
The content packed into this luggage is domestic, scientific and political - nothing is folded neatly, it's all jammed in among  branches, which remain unaffected by it.
