Corona Panic Score

Corona Panic Score / 2020



                                        No specific beginning and no end in sight, it’s just there, here, frazzed energy, relentless, unfixed and unusable. It goes on.

Ink on vintage sheet music forms, edited for publication. 

This is asemic music and anyone is welcome to play it.

There's No Telling What...

There’s no telling what.... 2020

The story struggles to surface. It is either political or lodged so deeply in the unconscious that even dreams do not pry it from redaction. Yet it persists. The pages are not entirely black – a few barely legible images can be discerned... 
This book expresses a condition that affects the written word : redaction. It is like a disease that attacks the skin while leaving the armature intact.

Projection Lamp Catalog


Projection Lamp Catalog”, a visual, non-buying publication, is a selection of drawings  that focus on the distribution of information on a page.  The information is asemic – it has no semantic value.  The drawings consist of (analog and digital) marks deployed as signals rather than symbols. Patterns, echoes, vibrations, pulsations and waves suggest sound and motion in this exploration of non-verbal language.

Dearest, correspondences

Dearesttransforms email scams about money into poetry about human desire by way of erasure. Both the original and the transformation are presented on facing pages. These emails were accumulating in my junk mail box until I transferred them to my raw materials folder which I open in idle moments. These missives, these attempts to get something from someone for nothing and the language they use – is it intentional, or is it the result of a translation algorithm? Do these promises of money ever hook anyone? Erasure brings out another layer, no less desperate. The search for connection continues -- for better or worse.
